Koeman: This can’t be accepted

Barcelona needed extra time to beat Cornella after twice missing penalties, which Ronald Koeman said was unfair.

Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman was furious that his team missed two penalties in their Copa del Rey victory over Cornella. Otherwise, Cornella goalkeeper Ramon Juan had kept Barca at bay, making seven saves in the first half to deny Miralem Pjanic and Dembele in the second, including two from the spot.

“The most important thing is always to go through, but we can’t be happy because we scored goals,” he told Barca TV.

“We missed two penalties and in these types of games, you have to have more accountability. Again, 120 minutes, because we’ve had three games [like that] and it’s on us, it’s an important subject. We’ve produced chances and two penalties… it can’t be. I can’t complain about the effort, but it’s not just running, but making and being good as well.

Today was genuinely difficult. It may not be, and it is not appropriate.
You have to win matches sooner. We’ve missed two penalties, we’ve had opportunities. It can’t be that so much is missed by a team like Barca.

Nor do I understand it, since we normally have enough players to be able to score a penalty. It can be frightening. I don’t know why we missed so many penalties. As a Barcelona player, you can’t miss two penalties. This isn’t that serious.”
