What they said
Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman said on Saturday it is not possible for him to be under more pressure.
“I don’t think it’s possible to be under more pressure,” said Koeman at the eve of match press conference.
“As Barcelona coach you have to take it, no problem. I know the importance of a Clasico.”
Asked if he still felt the backing of the club, Koeman said smiling: “I have to answer every game if that’s the case. I think I am the coach of Barcelona now, tomorrow let’s see. I feel supported by the club but I know everything depends on results.
“We know exactly what we have, and what we have to do,” said Koeman. “I don’t have any fear.”
Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti is relishing the occassion.
“They’re special games. In every country there are special games like Inter-AC Milan, Chelsea-Tottenham, Bayern-Dortmund. It’s a special game for Spain and the Clásico is the most important one for the fans. It’s not like any other game and I like to prepare for it with the utmost calmness and maximum focus.
“I’ve been impressed with everyone’s commitment. I see it every day in training. The team is focused. We haven’t had any fantastic moments, but the players are motivated and showing great focus to train every day. Against Shakhtar it was our best game. We played really well and have to continue like this.”
