“We have players who can score like Aguero and Depay, that’s why I can’t complain about the team,” he added.

The Dutchman continued: “It was difficult for us to enter the match, Rayo Vallecano put a lot of pressure on us, the result is not fair, but it cannot be changed.”

The Barcelona coach explained: “The problem was not the performance, the opponent did not create many chances, we showed that we can compensate, it is unbelievable that we lost this match.”

And Koeman added, “The fall between the ninth and tenth places? We fell because we lost very influential players, which is also important.”

He stressed, “Does Barcelona aspire to win the La Liga title? There are many matches left. I am worried because of the team’s effectiveness.”
