Barcelona’s Ronald Koeman accuses Riqui Puig of being ‘a leak’ in front of entire locker room, sensational report claims – Bukipress


- Advertisment -

RONALD KOEMAN has reportedly accused Riqui Puig of leaking information in front of his Barcelona team-mates.

The Dutchman took charge at the Nou Camp this summer but quickly informed the 21-year-old Spaniard he did not feature in his plans.

Barca defeated Elche 1-0 last night thanks to a LIonel Messi strike, but the midfielder was left out of the matchday squad.

But in the build-up to the clash, El Pais claims Koeman had a stunning dressing-room bust-up with the youngster.

And they claim the former Everton boss told the ace: “You’re a leak.”

Koeman is reportedly intent on eliminating harmful and troublesome characters from within the Barca squad.

Part of that plan was to flog several older members, which led to the departures of Luis Suarez, Ivan Rakitic and Arturo Vidal.

However, things are not going smoothly for Koeman so far with the Catalans.

They went into yesterday’s game sitting tenth in La Liga, although they have climbed to eighth.

And forward Antoine Griezmann publicly criticised the team’s performance after their 3-0 defeat to Juventus in the Champions league this week.

The best available free agents still on the market

Koeman tore into his players after their shock loss to Cadiz last weekend, saying: “The defeat is difficult to explain.

“We’ve come here after some good games, but the first half wasn’t good. We were better in the second half, but the way in which we lost was incredible.

“We lost due to an unexpected mistake that you cannot make. It came from not being focused.

“The attitude wasn’t good tonight, and not just from the defenders.

“It’s very hard to explain some of the goals that we’ve conceded. I think it might be because of a lack of concentration.

“We lack aggression without the ball. That might be why we concede. It’s not easy to explain that second goal.”
