Ronald Koeman: missing two penalties can’t be accepted

Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman was angry that his team missed two penalties in their Copa del Rey victory over Cornella.

After twice missing penalties, Barcelona needed additional time to defeat Cornella, which Ronald Koeman said was unacceptable.

Making seven saves to deny Miralem Pjanic in the first half and Dembele in the second, including two from the spot, Cornella goalkeeper Ramon Juan had otherwise held Barca at bay.

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

“We missed two penalties and you have to have more responsibility in these types of games.”

“Again, 120 minutes, it’s an important topic because we’ve had three games [like that] and that’s on us. We created chances and two penalties… that cannot be.”

“I can’t complain about the effort but it’s not only running but also creating and being effective. It was really tough today. It cannot be and it can’t be accepted.”

“You have to win matches earlier. We missed two penalties, we had chances. It cannot be that a team like Barca misses so much.”

“I don’t understand it, either, because we usually have enough players who can score a penalty. It can be scary. I truly don’t know why we’ve missed so many penalties. You can’t miss two penalties as Barcelona players. This isn’t serious.”

Writing about football is one of my favorite things to do. As a football writer, I love the rush of being in the stadium on game day and watching all the action live. It's like no other feeling for me. I'm passionate about writing about it, but until recently I've been doing it as a hobby rather than a profession.
