It could already be seen that things were not going right from Suarez’s post-game statements, in which he pointed towards the manager when asked being asked about the problem in away games.

The players blamed the coach for some of his decisions, and some changes he made during the Celta game, such as bringing Griezmann on. The players are starting to think that if they continue like this, they will not be able to win titles. After the Celta Vigo tie, Real Madrid has the opportunity to get on top of the La Liga table with 2 points clear.
Fans, however, believe that Barça should be patient. Culés are not forgetting that Setién took over mid-season and that he definitely deserves some more time.
Dembélé is expected to start against Ferencváros after impressive Osasuna display
Ronald Koeman is well aware of the limitations concerning Ousmane Dembélé. The Frenchman is an incredible asset and a highly talented player. However, he is also injury prone and Barcelona can’t afford to use him relentlessly.
For that reason, the young winger has been on the bench for the last couple of games despite performing on a regularly high level whenever chosen to play. According to a new report from SPORT, however, Dembélé is expected to start Barcelona’s upcoming Champions League clash against Ferencváros.
This is a direct result of another encouraging performance just the other night against Osasuna. The Frenchman came off the bench and even scored a great goal before it was ruled offside. We’ve also seen him play at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium against Atlético Madrid but back then, he sprained his shoulder so Koeman had to be extra careful going into the next games.
But the main thing is that Dembélé is still very much an important part of the squad and offers a unique profile to the coach. For that reason, and seeing how he’s once again 100% fit, everything indicates he’ll be back in the gala XI on Wednesday, as SPORT suggest.
This, needless to say, is a rather encouraging sign for a player who was so close to leaving the club during the summer transfer window.
Long may it continue!
