Barça coach Ronald Koeman's optimistic message after Atletico draw

Despite Saturday's draw against Atletico Madrid reducing Barcelona's chances of winning the league title, coach Ronald Koeman is not throwing in the towel.

The Dutchman, who had to watch the match from the stands after being sent off against Granada and handed a two game ban, didn't speak to the press after the game. Due to his suspension, that task instead fell to his assistant, Alfred Schreuder.

However, in a message posted on social media, Koeman expressed optimism with three games to go in La Liga.

"There were chances for both teams," he wrote. "In the end, a fair result. Everything is still possible! #ForçaBarça"

Barça need to win all their games and hope both Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid either lose one game or draw two to let them back in.

In the stands, Koeman was very active on his phone to remain in contact with the bench and the team and to pass on instructions to Schreuder.
