On March 7 the election will be held to determine the new Camp Nuo president.

Koeman told the reporters the decision to sign




stars will be the new president's to make. He added:

“We have to focus on ourselves. Important games are coming up.”

Although it has been just revealed that Barcelona are in debt and are already struggling with financial problems due to the pandemic, two of the candidates have talked about the possibility of signing Mbappe and Haaland.

Koeman also talked about

Clement Lenglet

who's error turned Barca's victory into a 1-1 draw and said:

“I spoke to Lenglet this morning, he’s a great professional and he takes everything very personally.

“But as I said, we also made a lot of mistakes in attack, we could have made a second goal and with a 2-0 lead, such a play is not so decisive.”

He then mentioned the importance of the presence of the team leaders:

“There are leaders, there are captains like [Gerard] Pique, [Sergi] Roberto, [Sergio] Busquets and [Lionel] Messi.

“There is enough personality. They must lead the way and are important to show young players where we’re going.”
