Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman has played down criticism from Miralem Pjanic.
Koeman was accused by Pjanic of treating him poorly last season as he left on-loan for Besiktas.
But Koeman responded to this Pjanic’s comments, defending himself.
“I think there’s some frustration on the player’s part and I understand that,” Koeman told Mundo Deportivo.
“However, in terms of how we play, our ideas with and without the ball, he’s fallen short of other midfielders.
“That’s it. I wish him all the best. It’s been complicated, but we tried and we saw that there are other players who are better than him.”
