Former Barcelona midfielder Miralem Pjanic has joined Besiktas on a one-year loan deal, with Ronald Koeman explaining why. Pjanic criticized Koeman earlier this month, saying the Dutchman had squandered his chances and now the coach has responded to his former midfielder.
I think it's a bit of frustration on the part of the player that I understand,"
Koeman told Mundo Deportivo.
"But in our way of playing, in our ideas with the ball and without the ball, he has lost the battle with other midfielders, and nothing else.
"I wish him the best. It has been complicated. We have tried, we have tried and we have seen that there are other players better than him."
