Koeman unhappy with keeper Ter Stegen for Atletico Madrid defeat

FC Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman has expressed his frustrations on keeper Ter Stegen after his team fell to Atletico Madrid on Saturday night.

The German keeper was at fault when he allowed Yannick Carrasco to score the only goal in the game and according to Koeman, his team cannot afford to concede goals like they the one they had in the game.

"We played well in the first half, but a team like Barcelona cannot concede a goal in the 47th minute as we did,” Koeman said.

The tactician further admitted that he was worried about their growing injury list and admitted that they didn’t take their chances against Atletico.

"I'm worried like any coach. There are a lot of injuries these days because of the schedule we have. I will wait until tomorrow to see how the two players (Gerard Pique and Sergi Roberto) are doing; I don't know if they will be out for a while. I haven't spoken to the doctor yet.

"The players are working well, but we want better results. In principle, we have done our best. Then we had two very clear chances to equalise. It's always difficult, we know that Atletico defends very well. The goal (we conceded) was our fault; it's not good and it can't happen," the former Everton man added.
