Barcelona Coach Ronald Koeman has said that tomorow’s match against Laliga table toppers Atletico Madrid will not be decisive no matter the outcome.
He also said that his team can win the Laliga if they win all their four remaining games.
“I am convinced that if we win our remaining 4 games we will be champions. He said ,in his pre match conference ahead of Barcelona game against Atletico Madrid.
“During a season there are always ups and downs. We have recovered a lot of ground to be where we are and we did not expect it three months ago. Now I understand that this is a day that can be an important step. We have to be very ready.
“We are two good teams and we are fighting with two more teams. The style of each team is very different, it cannot be compared.
“I don’t think tomorrow’s result will be decisive. Important, yes, but not decisive.”
“CAS appeal? I don’t know why we haven’t heard something yet. I would like to be at the game, but if not, it’s no problem. Our staff has shown they’re great during the game against Valencia.
“I spoke to Ansu before his trip. We encouraged him. There were some things that didn’t go well because 6 months is a long time and the most important thing is that he will recover and he will be with us next season.
“It is clear that I am counting on Dembélé, as with everyone else on the list. He can be on the pitch. Lots of things can happen during a game. We will put the best team with which we think we can win the match.
“The best thing for us is that Leo stays, because it means continuing with the best player in the world. Of course we talk about the preseason, about signings, about how to improve the squad, it’s normal.
” I don’t think I should talk about referees. In general, the Federation puts one of the best referees for these games. We have to hope that he gets his decisions right.
“I think my suspension has been a personal matter against me. What I said is no reason to suspend me for two games, I think there is something more.”
