Barcelona’s thumping 6-1 victory over Real Sociedad was a perfect present for Ronald Koeman’s birthday.

Atletico Madrid

Ronald Koeman

’s side pulled off an astonishing performance.

The 58-year-old Koeman who celebrated his birthday today believed this to be a perfect present.

We played a great game, even though it was difficult for us to score the first goal,”

he told

Marca

after the clash.

“At 2-0 we dominated and we had a lot of effectiveness in attack.

“They have given me a great birthday present, and also to Alba and Griezmann (who turned 32 and 30 respectively this weekend).

“But I am not convinced we are not going to lose. There are very difficult games to come. The best we can do is to continue like this and today is important in order to win something.”

Barcelona stars are going to leave on international duty since the World Cup qualifiers are starting next week.

Koeman’s side will return to action in La Liga with a battle against

Real Valladolid

on April 5, before facing

Real Madrid

the next week.
