Barcelona boss 'Sergeant Koeman' Has made four noticeable change in training routine

Barcelona boss 'Sergeant Koeman' Has made four noticeable change in training routine

Ronald Koeman is imposing new rules on the Barcelona dressing room and the heavyweights are already calling him 'Sergeant Koeman', Marca's journalist Luis F. Rojo reveals.

Here are 4 key changes, outlined by the same source:

Duration

Under Koeman, the training session lasts longer, about 90 minutes.
The workout used to last just 60 minutes under Quique Setien and Ernesto Valverde.

Intension

The players' work rate and the coach's demands have increased significantly under a new coach.
The Blaugrana stars now need to run quite a lot, something that was clearly missing in the recent Champions League debacles against Liverpool and Bayern Munich.

Punctuality

The Dutch manager demands all players to report for training one hour before the actual start of the session.
This long-forgotten rule was first imposed by Pep Guardiola.

Discipline

Koeman orders each session to start as it's planned which may sound quite obvious but it wasn't the case in the past.
The workouts used to be often delayed because the players were simply hanging around the training facilities, playing basketball. Follow us on Google newsTwitter and on Facebook
