Ronald Koeman’s Press Conference ahead of tomorrow’s game with Alavés

“We analyse our game well, we must play with a high rhythm like the other day. The team is getting bigger and better, and we have good players.”

“Ter Stegen is fine, but he lacks a bit to play. He needs a couple more training sessions to be physically well.”

“Umtiti needs more training sessions to be able to count on him.”

“Pedri is a very humble kid, it’s normal for him to be praised for his work, but he has his feet on the ground.”

“I don’t know how the departure of Bartomeu will affect me, I will focus on winning titles and we will see who takes his position in the future.”

“Dembélé today is physically much better. He has trained well and has participated in the last games. He’s creative, he’s got speed, he’s good one-on-one, and he can play on both wings.”

“Ansu has to keep working and improving. Yesterday I was talking to him for a while about concentration, this is an aspect that needs to be improved so as not to lose balls. He’s a talent, he is a very good player, we have to care about him.”

“Riqui is not with us because of a technical decision.”

“In several games we’ve had 23 players, but for me it’s too many players. It’s better to travel with 20, 21 at most. I prefer that players train intensively rather than just travel.”

“For young players the advice is to wait and always be prepared, because you never know when you will have to prove your worth.”

“In his time Maradona was the best, but today Messi is.”

“Araújo has a lot of future and a lot of quality, we’re counting on him. He has a lot of future, although he has to improve on some aspects, like in building from the back and his first touch. But I’m happy with him.”

“I have no complaints about Griezmann either in training or in games. He has quality, he lacks a goal, but he gives us a lot.”

That concludes Koeman’s press conference.
