The tension with which the FC Barcelona is living these final measures of the season was evident in the game against him Getafe. The youth squad Oscar Mingueza, despite being a lifesaver in more than one game for an infield defense, he got a tremendous fight from Ronald Koeman.
It was all because he joined the attack in the best minutes of Getafe. The center-back went up, leaving the coverage behind dangerously clear, which caused the Dutch coach to put to shout and shout from the band to order him to come down immediately.
Moments later, he took him out of the field.
The score was 3-2 at the time of the anger of Koeman. When Mingueza went to the bench he received the consolation of Riqui Puig, which was warming up, but not that of his own coach.
He shook his hand to try to leave the situation in peace, and Koeman gave it to him reluctantly and almost without looking at him. However, after the game, the coach admitted that it had happened anyway.
“My reaction may have been a bit exaggerated. The change has not been to anger me. He has to learn that to be a Barça player he must be in all the games “, he took the issue away. Mingueza has become a permanent fixture for Koeman, and since he made his debut in the Champions League in November 2020 he has remained in the first team.
