FC Barcelona – La Liga Alluded to the likes of Riqui Puig
Ronald Koeman mentioned in his pre-match press conference ahead of facing Granada that the squad needs to improve and new players need to come in this winter.
However, the Dutchman also sent out a message to some of the young players whom he feels need to leave to get first team experience.
“The players whom I think should find a way out have already been told, as has [Barcelona’s technical secretary] Ramon Planes,” said Koeman.
“In the end it is always the player’s decision, as they have a contract. There are some players whose best option would be to find a way out and get minutes.
“A youngster cannot go a year without playing. It is not good for their development,” he stated.
Koeman did not share any names but it seems that the message is for players like Riqui Puig and Matheus Fernandes.
Carles Alena, meanwhile, looks set to join Getafe on loan.
