For the future, he wants to make a perfect squad. The former Brazilian and Barcelona player Rivaldo thinks that Ronald Koeman is doing the right thing! Ronald Koeman is doing the thing that his arch-rival Zinedine Zidane is failing to do so. So, Zidane is still behind Koeman in this sector, Rivaldo thought that.
The golden days of the Catalan club have passed already. And they are still missing the talented players gathering in the dressing room. Right now, Barcelona is keeping faith in young talents. Especially, when the Dutch manager Ronald Koeman has taken control of the Barcelona dressing room, he is fixing his eye towards the young talents.
After the 16th round in La Liga, Atletico Madrid is holding the top position on the league point table. They have gathered the highest 41 points so far. Yes, Real Madrid and Barcelona played two more matches than the team of Simeone but Real Madrid is still four points behind Atletico Madrid. And Barcelona is in 3rd position with 34 points so far.
In recent times, Barcelona is not the only contender for the league throne, everybody knows that. So, though Barcelona is in 3rd position, Rivaldo is still happy with the current performance of the club. He is satisfied because the current boss of Barcelona Koeman is using the young players perfectly. Yes, they are now behind on the way to lift the league throne but already Koeman’s team has secured the Spanish Super Cup final.

Team Barcelona is doing great right now and behind the charismatic performance of the club, Ronald Koeman is playing the vital role, Rivaldo believes that. The World Cup-winning footballer of Brazil wrote in his column that the key to using the young talents in the squad is not to give them pressure. Yes, he believes that Koeman is doing great by making the combination of Messi, Jordi Alba, and Busquets with the young players.
Ronald Koeman is doing the right
So, Koeman is deserving of the expected honor from the club official. However, Rivaldo also praised the current goalkeeper of Barcelona Ter Stegen. The former Barcelona forward has kept Stegen ahead of the former great goalkeeper of the club Victor Valdes. To him, Ter Stegen is the best goalkeeper in Barcelona ever. Yes, he can keep Stegen ahead of Victor Valdes.
Already, Barcelona has secured their place in the Spanish Super Cup final. In the 2nd semi-final, Real Madrid faced the defeat against Athletic Bilbao and ruled out from the tournament. To the eye of Rivaldo, Zinedine Zidane has failed to use the young players of the squad perfectly. No, he does not know what is the reason behind that or who is behind the scene. But at the beginning, Zidane used Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo, and other young talents perfectly but right now, the fully opposite thing is happening there.
Rivaldo: "I have always said that the key to managing young talents is not to put too much pressure on them and I think Koeman is doing well, bringing the kids together with Busquets, Messi, Jordi Alba… Koeman deserves to be congratulated and appreciated for that management." pic.twitter.com/Zv8iUiwmCe

In the current time of Real Madrid, Vinicius Junior is called as one of the best young talents. But the rumor has spread that Zidane is angry with the Brazilian professional forward and so, he is not grounding the talented player regularly. If that is true, the team is facing the problem, Rivaldo believes.
Yes, he has demanded that in the current week, he has read about it. As a punishment, Zidane is doing that. When the Frenchman Zidane talked about the techniques, Vinicius used his mobile. So, the coach became angry at him. But the way he is using for the punishment right now is not perfect. Because the team is suffering for that. Vinicius Junior could be fined for that.
