Ronald Koeman wants more from his players.
The Dutchman was critical in his side’s 2-1 winning performance against Dynamo Kiev.
The squad needed returning Marc-Andre ter Stegen to make several important saves to claim all the three points.

“We started the game well, quickly going 1-0 up with the penalty and with chances to score more. But little by little we lost control of the game,” Koeman told Marca.
“They created a lot of danger at moments but thanks to Marc, who was phenomenal. In the end, 2-1, complicated, above all without the ball was not good today.
“For me the problem is sometimes you can’t press … and if you do press you leave space to play. If we press, everyone has to press, the defence high, and I think there have been doubts there. They played well and created a lot of danger.”
”In general, we’ve been OK defensively. In no game has a team created the danger that they did today. But without the ball we have to improve.”
