"When I Talk About Veteran Players I Don't Mean Leo" - Ronald Koeman Sends Plain Mesage To Messi

After a brilliant win over Elche with firing three past them in the second half, having a spark into a typical Barcelona play, Barça manager echoed these messages after the emphatic win.

Ronald Koeman made it known that "We were much better in the second half than we were in the first half. Everything went more fluently, and we had more depth."

With Pjanić he has to work on his rhythm on the ball and his positioning. When you change a player it seems to be his fault, but that's not it. With Dembélé we would have more depth, and that's why we subbed him on."

"When I talk about veteran players, I don't mean Leo, because his effectiveness is still impressive. Other veterans have to make a difference."

"I liked the team's attitude. That we couldn't score in the first half, doesn't mean our attitude was bad. Sometimes things just don't work out. We're humans, not machines."

"Messi has shown once again to be a very important player for this team."

"Griezmann needed rest because he played a lot. We play many games, and sometimes fatigue is visible. We have to be fresh, and hence the changes today."

"Dembélé's entry gave us some freshness in the attack tonight."

"It is always important to have players like Pedri because he can play in various places. Only smart players can do it and he is one."
