Koeman’s brother claims that someone leaked information from Barcelona
Erwin Koeman, brother of Barcelona head coach Ronald, claimed that someone leaked the Barcelona team sheets in the early months of the season. Erwin said that the mole came from inside the dressing room, but his brother has since resolved the issue. “In the first few months, someone in the dressing room leaked the line-ups, but Ronald figured it out,” Erwin Koeman told reporters. Meanwhile, Ronald has denied this version of events, suggesting it was a misrepresentation. “It surprised me. I don’t think my brother is at fault; the two of us speak,” said Ronald Koeman. “I think the journalist has got it wrong. On that day, a conversation with Riqui Puig appeared in the press. The information about the line-ups is not true.”
Meanwhile, Erwin also spoke about his brother’s time at Barcelona this season, praising Frenkie de Jong while stating that the newcomers are struggling to adapt to the game with Lionel Messi. “Every new player in the club is afraid to be not on the wavelength of Messi, of getting it wrong,” said Erwin Koeman. “That’s why players like Ousmane Dembele or De Jong took the time to find the right chemistry with Messi.” Erwin Koeman has worked alongside Ronald at Southampton and Everton, and he was most recently head coach of Oman.
