Ronald Koeman has been in the spotlight all season after Barcelona’s poor results. After the defeat against Real Madrid, the last to comment on the work of the Barça coach was García Pimienta, a former coach of the Barcelona subsidiary, who spoke in Gerard Romero’s space. The coach considers that Koeman does not know how to take advantage of the Barça squad, and believes that the team has enough level to compete for all the titles. García Pimienta believes that he himself at the wheel of the team would be able to aspire to win all competitions.
“I am sure that the first team of Barça, with the current squad, with what is now and as soon as Dembélé, Ronald Araújo, Pedri recover … having all the players now, I don’t know if they would win the Champions League, the League and the Cup. del Rey, but would aspire to win almost all titles. Aspiring to win means competing to try to win all of these. Then you can get Bayern Munich, Manchester City or Liverpool and you can lose, because it falls within the logic, but the team would play better and would have better options to aspire to win titles. I have no doubt, “the coach declared convinced.
The former Barça coach also spoke about his departure from Barcelona last June. García Pimienta was confirmed as coach of Barça B, and a few weeks later it was announced from the club that they did not have him. Pimienta explained that the board thanked him for all his work and his behavior during all the years at the Culé club, but that they wanted to put their people.
“Telling me that I was not in the line of grassroots football … is the opposite. In 2018 when I go up to Barça B is when it returns to the origin. In previous years, top squads had been formed with no options for players to reach the first team. All the games that I have coached for Barça, at B, youth, cadets… we have played with 4-3-3, true to style ”, García Pimienta commented in his interview with Gerard Romero.
