Ronald Koeman talks Suarez, Fati, Dembele ahead of Atletico clash

Ronald Koeman spoke to the press ahead of clash against Atletico Madrid.

The Dutch manager spoke out about Ansu Fati, Ousmane Dembele and reunion with Luis Suarez in a pre-match press conference.

Koeman on Ansu Fati

“I haven’t spoken yet with Ansu. I spoke to him before he left. He spoke with our doctor yesterday and we wished him well. It’s true that the poor kid has had some bad luck. There are a few things that didn’t go well.

“I don’t want to talk about it much more. It’s been 5-6 months and the most important thing right now is he gets better and he can be with us hopefully next season. It’s been an important loss, to miss a player like him, the most important thing is he recovers well.”

Koeman on Dembele

“I count on him tomorrow like I count on all the players. We will analyze the match. He might start on the bench or in the starting XI, we’ll see. Throughout the match I can make changes so I need all the players. Tomorrow we will play the team we think is best to win.”

Koeman on Luis Suarez

“It will be a little bit awkward for him and our players because he played here for a long time but we’re professional and everyone will try to do the best for their team. I don’t think we need to focus too much on this. We need to concentrate on him but also the rest of the team.”
