Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman has said that the club cannot lose another game this season if they want to win La Liga.
“It’s another game and you can’t trust the results of other days,” Koeman said in comments carried by Marca. “It’s another rival, another ground. If we’re not at our level, the opposition can complicate the game a lot. You have to be humble and do things well with and without the ball, and show personality on the pitch.”
“We knew it would be a tough week with three away games,” Koeman said. “We have to recover and show that we still can do it, both to ourselves and others. We aren’t in a situation where more points can be lost. There’s great pressure – we know that we can’t lose. Because of our position, we can’t lose more.”
“I look at the team in first,” Koeman said. “Atletico Madrid have been very strong in the championship, they concede few goals and they have players who can go and score and win games. It’s very complicated. You have to realistic, but if you win a game you’re just four points off.”
