Koeman indirectly name Fati, Pedri and others as Barcelona future' without Puig and Dembele


Barcelona had a rather old squad last season, so the club sold some veterans and brought in fresh blood.

Koeman says that Fati, Pedri, Araujo, Trincao and Dest are all players for the future.

However, the coach didn't mention Puig and Dembele, who are young as well.

"The club felt that we needed to rejuvenate. You can now see that in the team. [We have] Ansu Fati, who is 17 years old. We have Pedri, also 17, who gets his chances. Ronald Araujo is 21. Francisco Trincao comes on a lot and is 20. And we have Sergino Dest who's 19. These are all players for the future," Ronald Koeman has told NOS.

Curiously, Koeman didn't mention Riqui Puig and Ousmane Dembele, who are 21 and 23 years old respectively. Perhaps the coach forgot about them, perhaps it's because he doesn't count on them.

As Diario Sport reported earlier, Barcelona have become younger as the average squad age has dropped from 26.52 to 25.50 after the club sold Luis Suarez, Arturo Vidal and Ivan Rakitic.
