Barcelona coach Koeman happy with victory at Ferencvaros: Valdano should speak to Griezmann every week!

Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman was delighted with their 3-0 Champions League win at Ferencvaros.

Martin Braithwaite, Ousmane Dembele and Antoine Griezmann struck for the visitors.

Koeman said at the final whistle: "In the Champions League we are doing well. Five out of five and quite a few goals. Let's see if we can continue like this in the tournament.

"It is good that they score. We have had a great first half and, in that sense, there is competition in attack. Hopefully everyone is like Griezmann, Braithwaite and Dembélé.

"There is good competition They are raising the level in attack. There were games in which we have not had this effectiveness because that gives the points."

It was also put to Koeman that Griezmann is a changed man since his interview with former Real Madrid chief Jorge Valdano.

The coach replied: "Well, let Valdano come every week then!"
