Barcelona coach Koeman: We lack players; you know I want to buy

Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman admits he wants to add to his squad this month.

However, he says he will accept if it's not possible due to the club's financial position and the fact there is no president at the moment.

"You know my stance," he said in Saturday's pre-game press conference. "Of course we lack players, but it all depends on the club's financial situation. I don't decide.

"I spoke with (the presidential candidates) and my opinion isn't too different to theirs. It all depends on the club. If we can't bring anyone in, then I accept that and we continue with what we have.

"We have enough quality but we want more and we have to improve in certain areas."
