Koeman maintained that his players must enjoy themselves if they want to get the best out of themselves.
Ronald Koeman, 57, was confirmed as Barcelona manager on Wednesday morning.
Speaking in his first press conference at the Auditori 1899 on Wednesday night, Koeman said, “As I am Dutch, I like to have the ball and control it. To play good football.
“I have been a coach for a long time, and I have learned a lot. I am ready to coach Barça at the highest level.
“Football is to be enjoyed, and that is the first thing I will say to my players.
“If you don’t enjoy yourself, you won’t get the best out of yourself.”
