Barcelona chief Yuste reveals Kounde talks after missing Rayo draw

Barcelona defender Jules Kounde is staying calm after missing out on yesterday's 0-0 draw with Rayo Vallecano for their LaLiga opener.

Barça vice president Rafa Yuste explained before kickoff that the club have calmed Kounde down regarding the situation.

"I have spoken with Kounde to give him peace of mind," he said. "We have explained the reasons, he understood and we have promised we will do everything possible so he's playing against Real Sociedad next weekend. The fans have confidence in the board."

Yuste is happy with the business done by Barça this summer and says still could be more signings (Marcos Alonso, Bernardo Silva).

"We have done a great job to register nearly all the signings," he said. "The sensations have been good since the Gamper and the team is excited to fight for everything."
