Koeman offers his opinion on Bartomeu's arrest and Barçagate situation

The Dutch coach says this week's events are not good for the club's image

Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman gave a press conference on Tuesday and was naturally asked about Barçagate and the arrest of, among others, the club's former president Josep Maria Bartomeu.

Koeman was happy to answer the question: "It's not good for the club's image. We will have to wait and see what's happened. I wasn't here at the time, I don't know. We can't do anything about it, we just have to focus on football."  

Bartomeu was the president who appointed Koeman and the Dutch coach only had good words for him despite this week's events.

"When the news came out I was devastated [for Bartomeu] because I know him well -- and also Oscar Grau, who was among the four people detained," he added.

"I felt bad for them, because I had some big moments with them, even if our time together was brief. For me, Bartomeu has always been an exceptional person."
