The Dutch coach is delighted to have the Spain forward back and firing

Ronald Koeman spoke to the media after Barcelona's 3-1 win over Valencia in LaLiga on Monday. Here is what the Dutch coach had to say:

On Ansu Fati: "Slowly but surely he has to improve physically, but his talent is undeniable. Today he played for an hour and he's getting more and more match rhythm all the time. I hope he can play for this club for many years. We have a plan with him. This was his first start. Little by little he will improve and be more important. He's different from the other players. We agreed with the medics we would give him an hour. If it was up to me, I would not have changed him."

On Sergio Aguero: "It's important for the team to get the injured attackers back. Ansu and Aguero are different players with special qualities. Aguero also has experience. I hope he follows a similar path to Ansu. It's not a question of quality, it's about being in good shape."

On Sergiño Dest: "In the youth teams at Ajax he always played as a winger. He knows that position and did well. It was a good performance from him."
