Miralem Pjanic has been given a very limited playing time under Ronald Koeman and has finally left in the summer to join Turkey club Besiktas on loan.
To this day, Bosnian is not sure what the Dutchman wanted from him on the field.
“I still don’t know what Koeman was looking for, he didn’t try to explain things to me, or find a solution,” he told Bein.
“I was the one who would ask him what he wanted from me, instead of me, what I was doing wrong or wrong to find out how to get used to it quickly within the team, to be helpful …
“In the end, in the end, you need 17-18 players to win titles. But for him there were no problems in my game, he never gave me answers.”
Speaking of the current turmoil of his present’ team, Pjanic believes the party needs a leader.
“Barcelona are in a difficult situation. The results are not going as the fans wanted. The players are under pressure,” he said.
“Maybe the team needs a leader who will develop it. Barcelona is one of the four or five biggest teams in the world.
“Barcelona will be back to the old days, but it will take time.”
