Ronald Koeman Not Happy with Costly Mistake Made By the Goalie
Barcelona head coach Ronald Koeman accepts his side cannot afford to make the kind of mistakes as goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen did in first-half stoppage time which led to their 1-0 lose to Atletico Madrid.
There appeared little clear and present danger when the ball was cleared up field just before the break when Ter Stegen took it upon himself to rush towards the halfway line, only for Yannick Carrasco to sidestep him and shoot into an empty net.
Ronald Koeman and his men could not find their way back into the match, leaving Koeman once again facing more questions over the direction of his side, who sit 10th in the table and look well off the pace. The manager is currently on a hot seat and the mistakes happening in the teams seems to be heaping more trouble for him.
According to him he said: “We played well in the first half, but a team like Barcelona cannot concede a goal in the 47th minute as we have done.” “The players are working well, but we want better results. In principle we have done the maximum.” “Afterwards we have had two very clear opportunities to tie the game. ” “But we know that Atletico defends very well. The goal was our fault, it is not good and it can’t happen.”
Some players in the Barcelona team has been already labeled special as he was asked not to sell them, the manager is now concerned if this players keep making mistakes he will have to sell the players. He said they cannot afford to make any mistake now as they are not getting any better with Messi eager to leave the club.
