Koeman comment on Lenglet-Umtiti competition for starting spot.

Koeman comment on Lenglet-Umtiti competition for starting spot.

There are no guaranteed starters between Lenglet and Umtiti as Koeman plays the one who is in better form.

The coach says that Clement is important to the team while adding that Samuel has been in a good shape after coming back from injury.

"Clement Lenglet is important to us. We have competition because Samuel Umtiti has been fine after his injury. It's not that one is better than the other, sometimes one does the job well and then it's time [for the other one] to wait," Ronald Koeman has said in the press conference ahead of the Real Betis clash.

Umtiti was the one to start alongside Ronald Araujo in the last two matches. Samuel put in a great performance against Athletic Bilbao but was awful against Granada, costing Barcelona two goals.

Normally, Lenglet is the coach's first choice to star, though, as the 25-year-old has played 28 matches this term, starting in 23 of them.
