Lack of creativity in the Barcelona forwards force Ronald Koeman to appeal to the board for the recruitment of the news striker in the winter transfer window.
Recently, Barcelona suffering a lot while attacking the opponent team. Though they have the victory over the opponents but not impressed by the Catalonia fans by their attackers. In the absence of Lionel Messi due to injury, they disappointed the Camp Nou side.
In the previous La Liga match against Huesca Barcelona won the match by a goal difference of only 1-0. While scoring this one goal Barcelona attackers took 20 shots on targets which was enough to have at least two-three goals throughout the match.
But it didn’t happen like that and the hopes of the fans go on vanishing. As midfielder Frenkie de Jong brings the first goal for Barcelona in the 27th minute of the match. Therefore, it proves the worstness of Barca’s attack.
Lionel Messi was present in the game along with Dembele and striker Braithwaite but he was not able to fulfill Barcelona’s expectations. So Antoine Griezmann replaced him and the result from the striker’s performance continues with the same pattern.
Therefore, it becomes a headache for Dutchmen. Ronald Koeman faces the dilemma while selecting the striker during the match. Most of the time he started the game with Braithwaite but failed to prove his move in a couple of matches.
According to a report from Goal
With Lionel Messi Barcelona need a depth striker
While speaking Ronald Koeman said that he had the trust of every player present in the squad. But introducing three midfielders need the proper three attackers among one should be very sharp while finishing the ball and finding the net.
He also said that along with Lionel Messi I can play Dembele then it puts the question mark over Antoine Griezmann and Braithwaite. We missed a lot in this match but hope to do well in the future La Liga and UCL matched.
Meanwhile, he explained the scenario before the start of the season. He told, “We have said several times, at the beginning of the season, that we need someone at the top to have more competition and more goals, more effectiveness, but this depends on many things.”
In conclusion, he explained that Barcelona will focus more on its improvement like backline as well as front line. Henceforth, if we did this then we will face a great and successful year ahead after finishing the half-season.
Moreover, Catalans will face the away match against Athletic Club this weekend. Fans will be expecting to get some good results to improve the rank in points the table for being present in the top four in La Liga 2020-2021. In the last, it will depend on the squad’s performance.
Twelfth Man Times opinion:
Barcelona should look to sign their priority signing of the summer transfer window i.e Martinez from Serie A. But it will depend on the availability of the player. So they need to think a lot while signing the alternative for him to fulfill the requirement of Ronald Koeman.
