Barcelona's manager Ronald Koeman defended his choices against critics after a 1-1 draw against granada last night.He suggested that the players on the team sheet was inpossible to play 'any other way'.

Barcelona finished the match with Gerard Pique and Luuk De Jong playing upfront with barcelona's equaliser coming from Ronald Araujo a centre back.

Koeman went ahead and asked the reporters if the squad list was ideal to play the tiki taka way.

'We play the Barca way but we don’t have the speed in wide areas because we have Coutinho who cuts inside and Demir who doesn’t reach the byline much.

‘When Ansu Fati and Dembele come back then we will be different but they are not fit so we have to find alternatives.’

Also, Ronald Koeman complained abot granada's time wasting mentality from the early stage of the encounter after after netting an early goal just two minutes of the match.
