Barcelona head coach Ronald Koeman has shared his thoughts on the role of forward Lionel Messi and the team’s other veterans.
“They can’t always do everything on their own. Messi has scored 18 goals [in La Liga], all the other attacking players combined have scored as many. He needs help too,” Koeman said at the press conference.
“You can’t always ask only the most experienced to do everything. The whole team should be responsible, not just the veterans.”
Messi, with 18 goals, is Barca’s top scorer this La Liga season. He is followed by Antoine Griezmann with six goals and Ansumane Fati with four.
