Koeman managed to get his first title as coach of the FC Barcelona, the coach of the Barça team managed to “avenge” the final of the Spanish Super Cup and on this occasion beat the Athletic club. A victory that excites a new generation and stage of the culé club and incidentally, consolidates the Dutch as a coach. Precisely, to demonstrate this good synergy with Laporta, he published a photo with him toasting in mid-flight and the coveted Cup.
“It is a happy day for all the Catalans. We have worked a lot to win the Cup ”, commented the coach at a press conference. “It is the best possible trophy for me. Barça is my home. It is a very important title for the club at the moment in which it is. Barça always have to fight to win trophies. The team has had hope, faith and hunger, “added Koeman after lifting the title with the FC Barcelona.
Besides highlighting the disposition of his entire squad: «His attitude in the Cup has been very good. We already have one title in our pocket and now we want the second one. It has been a difficult season from the first moment. We have fought and suffered a lot to get here and now we have to give everything to win the League, “said the Dutchman.
As expected, he analyzed some details of his approach to this match: “Our possession of the ball has been phenomenal. It was difficult for us to open the can, but after getting ahead on the scoreboard we have been extraordinary. Having the ball for a long time is not the most important thing. You have to create chances and today we have done it perfectly ”, he commented.
“I have not given many laps to eleven. The team has been playing very well with three center-backs for a while and I think it is the best possible system to play against Athletic. It has allowed us to find free men many times in the middle of the field ”, declared the coach. The culé team beat Bilbao 4-0 without a doubt, the reflection of a notable superiority in this commitment.
