Jules Kounde identifies area Barcelona must improve

Barcelona defender, Jules Kounde has identified the areas his team must improve ahead of their Europa League second-leg tie with Manchester United at Old Trafford on Thursday.

Both Man United and Barcelona had played a 2-2 draw in the first leg in Camp Nou last week.

However, Kounde wants Barcelona to improve on respecting their game plan.

He wants Xavi’s side to improve in their defence when they face Man United’s attackers.

Speaking ahead of the clash, Kounde was quoted by Football Espana as saying, “The defence has been key this season. Tomorrow [Thursday], we have another challenge against a great forward line.

“We face it with great confidence, knowing that we will have to do very well.”


“There are some situations in a game that we must control better, like when the game is going back and forth. At these moments, we do not respect our match plan. It is something we have to learn.”
