Ronald Koeman expressed frustration at the two penalties that Barcelona missed against Cornella on Thursday and discussed this some more on Saturday as he previewed the trip to take on Elche in LaLiga Santander.
The Dutchman wants his side to be more clinical from the spot and in general.
“If we look at the penalties, we’ve taken 12 this season and missed seven if we include the Supercopa shootout,” he said.
“That’s a lot, too much.
“If Lionel Messi isn’t there, who is our number one taker, then we need someone else to take them.
“We worked on this yesterday and today.
“We can’t accept the situation, something must change.
“We’ll decide [Sunday’s penalty taker] in the pre-match talk.
“We’ll pick two players, but the final decision will be in the hands of the captain.” Marca reported.
