Koeman won't back down on Griezmann's Barcelona position

Getafe vs Barcelona: I am in charge – Koeman fires warning at Griezmann

Barcelona's coach, Ronald Koeman, said on Friday 16-O that he wants to use Lionel Messi this weekend against Getafe despite the fact that the forward has just played two games with the Argentine team for the South American tie, one of them in the height La Paz, because if you lose the pace of competition you get more exhausted.

"I told him I want the best for the team and I know he can play on the right side and other positions".

Griezmann continues struggling to produce his best form for Barca, but was on target for France in the global break and told the press afterward that France coach Didier Deschamps "knows where to play" him. "I understand that maybe there are positions he prefers, but we can't play with two players in the role of the 10". I can only play one No. 9, one No. 10, one No. 7 etc. It's up to each player to find his own best performance. "If there's another position that you like, well, we can not play with 10 players in the number 10 position".

Getafe forward Jaime Mata sent goalkeeper Neto the wrong way from the penalty spot to score the only goal in the 56th minute after Barca midfielder Frenkie de Jong had been penalised for treading on the foot of Djene Dakonam.

With a Champions League game against Ferencvaros and the first Clasico of the season against LaLiga champions Real Madrid to come next week, Koeman does not intend to use the Getafe game to rest Lionel Messi. It always depends on the player.

"I decide based on what's best for the team".

"Leo has spent many years playing in a tight schedule, and if he doesn't play then he feels even more exhausted", Koeman added. Leo he is a player who, if he does not play, is more exhausted, "he explained. If there is a medical issue or fatigue it is different, but he is capable of playing the next important games that lie ahead".

Samuel Umtiti, Marc-Andre Ter Stegen and Jordi Alba are still sidelined through their respective injuries, while Matheus Fernandez will not travel to the Spanish capital due to technical decision.

Koeman has reportedly impressed several members of the Barcelona squad, including Lionel Messi, since taking charge at the club following the departure of Quique Setien - with his demand for effort on the training ground said to have earned him the nickname "Sergeant Koeman". There is no need to set a date.
