Barcelona and Real Madrid Coaches React to the El Clasico
Koeman, Barcelona’s head coach, has talked to the press after the 1-2 El Clasico defeat at the Camp Nou stadium.
“We didn’t have the result we wanted but we were really good in the first half and the crowd was phenomenal,” Koeman stated, as Marca reports.
“We controlled the game well and had an opportunity to go ahead but it just didn’t happen.”
“Instead of going 1-0 up we went 0-1 down and that had a massive effect on the game,” he added.
“But I think we have shown today that we are not inferior to Madrid,” he claimed finally. “We have shown that, little by little, we’re improving and we are closer to winning big games.
Real Madrid’s boss has also commented on his team’s performance in the 2-1 away victory over Barcelona.
Carlo Ancelotti has said about the game at the Camp Nou stadium on Sunday, as per Marca:
“It was a practical game. Barça has complicated it for us. You have to admit, it wasn’t that simple.
“I am happy to win. El Clasico is the most important game. Unfortunately, this is only three points.
“We have played against a great team who has played a great game. And we’ve done very well. On the defensive aspect, I liked it a lot.”
“This team is very competitive and has a lot of quality – we have to enjoy it. This wasn’t an easy game and winning makes us happy,” the Italian concluded,
