Positive atmosphere at the dressing room even after a rough start in La Liga this term.
Manager Ronald Koeman claims there’s positivity in the Barcelona squad despite their patchy start to the new campaign.
The Blaugrana lost four of their 12 La Liga starts this campaign under new manager Ronald Koeman who replace Quique Setien.
“I have always seen a good atmosphere, despite the lost games. It is easier to have an atmosphere of joy when you win,” Koeman said ahead of Saturday’s contest with Valencia.
“With the game without the ball we were good. Sometimes it depends on the opponent, but if you play a lot of long balls you cannot press.
“The game was good to be able to put pressure on the opponent. We did well. We liked having that energy and that pressure. It depends on the opponent, but we always want to dominate and play at the top, sometimes it works out and sometimes not.
“Hopefully we continue in this dynamic. It is important to have a home game and win.
“Sometimes it’s easier, if you play well and win, the atmosphere is different. It’s normal, it happens in all teams.
“I see a united group, but it’s always easier for the press to get comments, because they don’t see what happens in the dressing room before and after games.”
