Barcelona coach Koeman: Bartomeu arrest not good for club

Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman has had his say on Josep Maria Bartomeu's arrest.

Koeman has made clear that the arrest of former club president Bartomeu is not a good thing for the Blaugrana.

Bartomeu and three others - CEO Oscar Grau and lawyer Roman Gomez Ponti, as well as former director Jaume Masferrer - were arrested on Monday as part of the 'Barcagate' scandal, which the Dutch coach distanced himself from.

"It's not a good look for the club," Koeman said during Tuesday's pre-match press conference.

"We have to wait and see what happens. I wasn't here [at the time], I don't know what happened. We can't do anything, we have to focus on football."
