Speaking ahead of Barcelona’s LaLiga match against Cadiz on Thursday, Koman said: “The club is with me as a coach in a state of reconstruction.


“The financial position of the club is linked to sporting performance and vice versa.

“It means that we, as a team, have to rebuild the football team without being able to make huge financial investments. It takes time.

“Today’s young talents can become new world stars in just a few years.

“The good thing about rebuilding the team is that young players will have opportunities like Xavi and Iniesta who were in their time.

“But patience is required.”

Barcelona have had a difficult start to the season after amassing just eight points from their first four LaLiga games.

Barca lost key players to Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann during the summer and are reportedly more than £1billion In debt.

And the Dutchman has doubts about how competitive he will be for the position, adding: “To be ranked high in the league would be a success.

“European football is a good school for these great talents and miracles can await us in the Champions League.

“Last week’s loss against Bayern Munich has to be looked at from that perspective.


“The process in which employees and our team find themselves worthy of unconditional support in word and deed.

“Support the technical policy and the process that we are going through. I know the press recognizes this process.

“This is not the first time in the history of FC Barcelona. We count on your support during this difficult time.

“We as a team and as players are very pleased with the great support from the fans like we got in the home game against Granada.

“Come on Barca, thank you very much for coming.”
