The new era at the Catalan club has officially started with Barça making his LaLiga debut, Ronald Koeman led his first official match at the Camp Nou and left the match happy with the team’s performance. Ansu Fati was the star of the night giving an exhibition with a brace.

Ronald Koeman, Sergio Busquets and Ansu Fati spoke in post-match interviews on Barça TV and Movistar Plus about their great debut in LaLiga, which ended 4-0 in favour of the Catalans.

Ronald Koeman

“We must highlight the game and performance of Ansu Fati. I was complaining a little about last week about not having the maximum performance in the preseason. He is only 17 years old, he will have a great future, he must improve things. Sometimes he lacks a bit of concentration.”

“He is a young player who has to seek consistency in his game and in his performance. He has shown that he has a great future at Barça ahead and I am very happy with him, he played a great game, with a lot of depth and a great performance. He has to improve and work every day, he is a good boy, open to listening. “

“We had a great first half, with a lot of mobility, a lot of pressure and good transitions, we pressed well, stealing a lot of balls. And one of my criticisms after the Elche game was the team’s performance, with many chances created and only one goal. “

“It is always important to win games, you gain confidence. This result helps us to improve and be clear about what we want. “

“We have players to play this system and we have shown it on the field and in training. The only thing that is not right is that in the second half we lost balls and slowed down. It’s normal, it was the first official game and we have to get physical. The most important thing is the overall work of the team. “

“I don’t care if he scores or not, I’m very happy with Griezmann’s performance. We can play without a clear 9 but it’s always good to have it. “

“Playing with Messi is a dream I had since I was a child and now I can do it. He always helps me and gives me advice, I’m very happy and he helps me a lot, in the field but also outside, in training. “

“I’m playing with the best players and the truth is that every game and every opportunity I am full with enthusiasm.”

“When a striker hits it, he always wants more,” and stressed that “in the first goal, Jordi’s pass is very good and he just had to accompany her.”

“We really want to continue improving as seen in the first half and this is the way to go. What I want is to keep improving every day, keep learning from my colleagues, who are the best and try to help me every day. “

Sergio Busquets

“It was a good game, especially in the first half. We have been superior and we have found many spaces, with a lot of mobility. In the second half, we lowered the intensity, trying to keep a clean sheet. In summary, the sensations are very good. “

“They are different systems, new colleagues, young people and together we are trying to adapt as quickly as possible. The feelings are good and we still have a bit to do to be the team we want. “

“Maybe in defence I have a partner at my side who is grateful, and an attack, I have more freedom to shoot higher. They are different systems but what matters is the equipment. “

“We have to be calm with Ansu Fati, we know his conditions and age, he has tremendous conditions, but we don’t want to run much either. He has great companions next to whom he can learn a lot. You have to let him play his football and learn. “

“The atmosphere in the dressing room is always good, and if there are games like this, it will surely be better.”

Barcelona started the season with the right foot and leaving good feelings.
