After Barcelona’s 1-0 victory over Catalan rivals Girona, Jules Koundé spoke in an interview covered by Mundo Deportivo:
“These away games can be very difficult, so you have to win no matter what. It’s true that we could’ve played better, but in these games in a tough stadium against an opponent who is playing well, the victory is key.”
Barcelona had difficulty finishing their chances created, and in the last 15 minutes, the away defence was subject to an onslaught of Girona attacks. Koundé at right-back was crucial in clearing dangerous situations on various occasions. In the interview, he recognised the importance of everyone’s performance.
“The whole team’s defensive work was key, not only Marc [ter Stegen’s] and the four at the back. Everyone was working very well.”
Lastly, the France international highlighted the midfielders’ contributions to the team. “The midfielders are great at creating danger. Today Pedri had his chance and we’re all very happy” added the defender.
