Today’s newspaper covers are not entirely focused on football. But when it comes to Barcelona, Ronald Koeman assures he doesn’t want to be like Luis Van Gaal. The Catalans already had one Dutch coach leading the team and there are some things that shouldn’t be repeated.

SPORT tackle this problem in their issue this morning. But, Rafael Nadal is the main focus of their paper for obvious reasons.

Still, one mistake the coach’s Dutch predecessor had made back in the day was put too many of his countrymen in the team. The current gaffer calls it ‘extreme‘ and assures he won’t follow down that path.

Apart from the fact that Koeman doesn’t want to be like Van Gaal, there’s more Barça news in there. Luis Enrique has once again given Ansu Fati a chance to shine and SPORT say the former Blaugrana coach is squeezing the youngster. Of course, this is surely a good thing since Lucho is a great mentor to have.

Elsewhere, Mundo Deportivo are also focusing on Nadal. The only Barcelona-related thing in today’s issue of their paper is the futsal team.

While European success has alluded them in football, Barcelona are now three-times Champions League winners in futsal. Needless to say, this is a huge achievement for the team.

I’ve been a Barcelona fan for more than half of my life. What started as blind love is slowly turning into professional writing. Now, I get to write about Barca, analyse them, and voice my opinions on them across platforms. I’m happy to be a part of this big project.
