“I was very surprised in training with Koeman,” Pjanic said. “There was no intensity, no tactics, no ideas. We did not prepare for the games.

“Preparation and training was good under Xavi, similar to what I was used to at Juventus, for example, where we won everything.

“Now the sessions at Barca have a lot of intensity. Xavi and his staff were very clear with us at the start of the season. They told us this year we would have to run and go 2000 miles per hour.”
