Ronald Koeman has spoken in the press conference ahead of the Celta 0-3 Barcelona game. The Dutch manager managed to finally break the curse at the Balaidos — the Catalan club had not won any of the last 6 games away against Vigo, losing 3 of them.

Koeman, on the other hand, broke the curse comfortably. The manager played an entire second half with 10 men, but still managed to score 2 goals to secure the game.

“I’m very proud of this team today, we have worked very well, with one player less. We have done a great job with a lot of discipline.”, Koeman said.

The Dutch manager explained that at the break, he rotated to a 4-4-1 system: “At the break we talked about the 4-4-1 system and the players have done a great job.”

Koeman also added that Messi did a great job tonight: “Leo has worked a lot without the ball and he has been very important.”

“We said to the referee that there were other fouls on the pitch. In the end, it’s his decision and there is no need to discuss. I think it was a foul but I’m not sure if it was a yellow card.”, added Koeman regarding the second yellow card that Lenglet received which brought his team down to 10 men.

The Dutch manager was asked about the Champions League draw as well:

“We can be happy about the Champions League draw. Juve and Barça are the two best teams in the group but it will have to be proven.”

“I can’t say much about last season, but from day one I’ve seen the players very eager and eager to turn the situation around. The players are training very well, and we’re better physically.”, concluded Koeman.

Everyone has some kind of passion. For me, it is FC Barcelona. I started to write stories about the club I support in 2017, and have been lucky enough to be part of such a wonderful team.

    Very impressive start to the season and we’re seeing that fighting spirit we once lost in our team.. Griezman has to sit up or Dembele should start more…

Former Barcelona player and club legend Ronaldinho has confirmed that he tested positive for COVID-19.

The World Cup winner, through a story he posted on Instagram, broke the news, saying that he tested positive for Coronavirus, while being asymptomatic, and self-isolating in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

“I’ve been here in Belo Horizonte since yesterday, I came to participate in an event.” Ronaldinho says in the video, before adding, “I took the test and tested positive for COVID. I am fine, asymptomatic, but we will have to postpone the event for later.”

The Brazilian legend ends the video on a positive note, by saying, “Soon we will be there together. Big hug!”

The 40-year-old joined Barcelona in 2003, and is often said to be one of the best players to play for the club. He is also called for being a revolutionary, helping Barcelona win their first Champions League in the new era, and their second ever after a 14 year gap. We wish Ronaldinho a speedy recovery!
