Ronald Koeman has reason to be angry with his players of late. The Dutchman kicked off in his press conference after they missed two penalties against Cornella in the Copa del Rey.
“I don’t understand it because we have players who can score, maybe it’s fear, but the truth is that I don’t know. you can’t miss two penalties being Barca players, you can’t be serious,” said Koeman.
If there’s anyone primed to talk about this, it’s Koeman. In his career as a player, he took 103 penalties. Of those, he scored an impressive 97.
This season Barcelona have missed five penalties. Messi, Griezmann, Braithwaite, Pjanic and Dembele have all been denied from the spot.
That’s why Koeman is angry. He knows that at this level, penalties need a lot of concentration. He will surely act to make sure the team has that going forward.
