, the Blaugrana have transformed their mentality. He toldCadena Ser
“I think that Barcelona already has a good run from many games: they have won more than 90 percent of the points in 2021. This is not something for a single month.
“It is true that the stumble against Cádiz ignited that pessimism that exists in football today. But it must also be said that since then the team has also won in the Copa del Rey and a strong performance in the return leg against Paris Saint-Germain. And now La Liga is alive again.
“I believe that dynamics are important in football. Let’s say there is a time when you see yourself capable of winning on any pitch. Barcelona are recovering the feeling that they can win in every game.”
The Shenzen FC boss then talked about Koeman specifically, praising the 58-year-old.
“Koeman has a lot of merit and not only for football. He has come to the club at a difficult time regarding the change of players, financial problems, all the institutional problems that have been had.
“Although he signed already knowing that it was a Covid time, but there are so many things that have come together and that make the coaching task very complicated.
“Because in the end the coach can do a lot of things, but you also depend on what there is. He has had a year that is worth two or three, because it has been a very busy year in all areas. I believe that in the end the work should be rewarded.
“I think the fact of being a person who already knows the environment of the club also gave him a big advantage. You have come to know how things work in good times and bad. And I think it will have been an advantage for him, without a doubt.”
