Barcelona lost 1-0 to Atletico Madrid in an away game.
Marc-Andre ter Stegen made a mistake, and Atleti’s Yannick Carrasco saw it as a chance to score – and Koeman is not hiding his displeasure.
“A team like Barcelona cannot concede a goal in the way we have done. We played well in the first half. We dominated without creating many chances against a team that defends well. If you commit errors, as we have done, it’s even harder to win the game,” said Koeman.
“I’m worried like any coach,” he said. “There are a lot of injuries these days because of the schedule we have. “I will wait until tomorrow to see how the two players [Gerard Pique and Sergi Roberto] are doing; I don’t know if they will be out for a while. I haven’t spoken to the doctor yet.”
“Like any coach, I am responsible. We know we have to improve results and grow in confidence. We are working hard, we have to improve things in defence and attack,” he said.
“I try to put out the best team we have available. The players have done everything to get a result and we have to continue in that way. I am not worried about the league, although we know we need to win games.”
