Barcelona coach Koeman: I feel unfairly treated

Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman admits he's been unhappy with his treatment by the media over the past fortnight.

Koeman says he feels badly treated over the past few weeks as Barcelona's title bid collapsed.

"I feel a little bit (mistreated) in the last two weeks," said the coach in a news conference on Saturday. "If you analyse a season, you must analyse the changes to the team, the young players, that we won the cup, that we had 13 points [less than Atletico] in December and we're still fighting for the league, even though it's a small possibility.

"That's what you need to analyse. And if I heard the media in the last few days, it looks like we did a really bad job and I don't agree.

"I feel supported by the players and the team has a big future. If we can sign what we think we lack to take the next step, I think we can be very excited about the team next season."
