FC Barcelona Koeman wants the media to score about ten goals per season
Koeman He demanded more offensive participation from his midfielders. The Dutch technician considers that the Barcelona they need the midfield to contribute about ten goals per season and in the last matches the players in these areas have taken a step forward in attack. Frenkie de Jong and Pedri They know that the technician has given them carte blanche to function with ease above.
Against him Granada, at New The Crimes, these two players raised their hands. More than half of his passes were in the opposite field, 25 in the case of the Canary and 28 in that of the Dutch. In addition, 90 percent of the balls that were distributed were successful, with hardly any inaccuracies.
Frenkie de Jong launched once and Pedri he came close to surprising the rival goalkeeper in the early stages of the game. He had the last dribble left over. Anyway, the two midfielders are willing to fatten up their shooting numbers and keep Koeman.
In the case of the Dutchman, his ease of getting the ball played from behind is a double-edged sword. The Barça coach values his predisposition to help in defensive tasks. In fact, he has even ranked him central on occasion. Anyway, Ronald Koeman has made it clear that he wants the international to have better numbers in attack.
The reconversion of De Jong not be simple, since the midfielder has never been characterized by his success in the face of the rival goalkeeper. His best season at the director level was 2018-19, with Ajax, in which he signed three targets. He has only scored eight goals in his entire professional career in club competition.
Fich by the Barcelona for his finesse with the ball and not for his toe, although the demands of the script force the Dutch to reinvent themselves.
Pedri, for his part, has established himself as one of the sensations of this first leg of the season of the Only. The Canarian footballer scored four goals in the entire 2019-20 campaign with The palms and now he already has three as a Barça player. His impudence and skill make him one of the best offensive arguments on the team.
Ronald Koeman he assumes that, because of his youth, he cannot give a regular performance. The demand with Tenerife is relative, but the coach has given him minutes and confidence so that he can grow calmly on the pitch.
The Bosnian midfielder has, on paper, more offensive characteristics than the rest of his teammates in midfield. The signing of this season has always contributed goals with him Lyon, the Roma o la Juventus, although it has not yet been released with the Barcelona. At present, Pjanic It is not one of the main options for the coach in the starting eleven, although from the club they remain convinced that it has been a necessary incorporation.
