Ronald Koeman hails Barca's recent form

Ronald Koeman hails his side’s fighting spirit.

The Blaugrana recorded a fourth win in five games and moves two points closer to league leaders Atletico Madrid.

The boss hailed his squad’s fighting spirit after his side’s win in Osasuna.

“We are trying to win every game, but that is the most difficult,” Koeman told Barcelona’s club media following the 2-0 win in Osasuna.

“In the past few months we have a great run and are making good wins, important wins, which is always good, but the fighting spirit is really wonderful.”

Koeman added: “It wasn’t our best game, but we were OK and we deserved to win. I’m happy.

The run of form is important. Let’s hope we can stay on the right track.

“Any result tomorrow (in the Madrid derby) suits us.”

Koeman happy to see Ilaix Moriba’s first Barcelona goal and expects to see more from the 18-year old.

“Every time he comes into the team, he adds something,” the Barca boss said.

“He is good on the ball and is a strong boy physically. He’s pushing to be in the first team more often.

“We’re really proud of being able to bring younger players through the ranks. We do it because they deserve to have opportunities.

“As a coach, I’ve always given opportunities to youngsters because they are a club’s future.”
