Ghana's No. 1

Koeman isn't biting his tongue

Published on: 30 November 2020

Ronald Koeman has spent 100 days in charge at Barcelona, and he's already showing clear signs of the kind of coach he is. His character was already well known in Spain, having played and coached in LaLiga Santander previously, and he's shown that he hasn't grown soft with time.

Koeman has no problems telling his players when he sees something that he doesn't like. He can be criticised for a lot, but it can't be said that he doesn't approach things head-on.

Even when Barcelona have dominated, Koeman hasn't been too keen to heave praise on his players, rather pointing out things that still need improving, as was seen after Sunday's comprehensive win over Osasuna.

Everyone was rubbing their hands together over Oscar Mingueza's performance, but Koeman was quick to highlight in his post-match press conference that there were still things he did that "a Barcelona centre-back cannot do."

But the Dutchman doesn't just do that with the kids, and not even Lionel Messi is spared, as was seen after the win at Juventus.

Antoine Griezmann has also had words from the coach when he hasn't been at his best, as has Frenkie de Jong.

Far from unsettling things with his strong comments, it seems as though Koeman has settled in well at the Camp Nou. The players appear to get on well with him and they appreciate the frankness.
