Koeman believes that Barca need Messi to achieve great things and win titles.

The coach says that the score was comfortable enough to rest important players like Leo and De Jong.

In the post-match interview after the Granada win, Ronald Koeman was asked to explain why he decided to take Leo Messi off after 65 minutes.

"Barcelona need Messi, we need him to achieve great things and fight for the titles. With the score, we were able to make changes and rest very important players like Messi and Frenkie de Jong," the coach said.

"If all the players are in good condition, we can compete for all the titles. This streak of results gives us a lot of confidence."

Despite playing only 65 minutes, Messi managed to score a brace. By the time the substitution happened, Barcelona were already 4-0 up against Granada.
