have not had a great run this season. The Blaugrana, who have had a late start to the league this season, are set to face the bottom-placed

Barcelona have experienced some changes, as

Joan Laporta

took over as the club president a few days ago. It is reported that Laporta is going to add

Jordi Cruyff

to his team.

“I can’t say much,”

Ronald Koeman


Mundo Deportivo

about Cruyff’s probable arrival at the club.

“The president has to decide his team in the important positions. I know him and his family well and he may be a candidate, but I don’t know. When the president takes office, they’ll talk about positions in the club.”

Barcelona boss also talked about his compatriot,

Frenkie de Jong

, and his improvement at the team.

He said:

“He’ll be here for many years.

“His improvement is there and he feels more responsible at Barcelona. Although he’s young, he’s taking more and more responsibility in games and I like that. To be a foreigner, you have to make a difference, and he’s doing it. He’s having a very good season. You cannot ask for more than for him to continue doing things as he has been.”

The Dutchman has also commented on his team’s mentality and claimed they don’t care about other team’s results.

“You have to focus on yourself. The team has been involved for a long time and not because of the results of others. Everyone is plugged in and they want to be involved, even the injured players. That shows on the field, that atmosphere and energy. It’s incredible looking at the data of how the team are physically. We’ve improved our game without the ball. Huesca are bottom but I’ve seen several games of theirs and they cause problems.”
