“After the bad first two, three minutes, that wasn’t good at all and they scored. You know you are playing against a team who is defending, who is [wasting] time in every second of the game.
“But we deserve at least one point.”
Koeman has struggled to win over Barca’s supporters and that was not helped by the fact that defenders Araujo and Gerard Pique were used as strikers in the final moments.
The Blaugrana delivered 54 crosses during the match, their most since 2005.
It was a far cry from the Barca performances of the last few decades. Koeman has not been helped by the departures of Messi and Antoine Griezmann.
