Barcelona’s Jules Kounde gives his verdict on Marcus Rashford showdown – Man United News And Transfer News


Barcelona defender Jules Kunde has warned his team-mates that Old Trafford will not be the place for easy results as the home crowd spurs on the Manchester United players.

Koone told reporters before the two clashed later tonight.

Barcelona could wreak havoc at Old Trafford by beating United to advance to the next round of competition.

The two European giants met in a 2-2 draw at the Camp Nou a week ago.

A thrilling match in Spain saw the Red Devils lead 2-1 and there was a moment when the Frenchman beat Marcus Rashford just outside the box.

The referee ruled it was not a foul, much to the wrath of Eric ten Hag. The Dutch were warned for protesting the decision.

Many within the fanbase felt that Kounde deserved a red card as they clearly denied a goalscoring opportunity.

Koone told reporters that he felt out of luck and that the referee made the right decision. The defender said it was him 50/50 and entitled to challenge the ball.

The Barcelona star said of Old Trafford: Your opponent is fast and strong in duels, so you have to switch on from the beginning. The first few minutes are crucial to feeling confident for the rest of the match. “

Kunde was also questioned about Rashford and his team’s plans to contain the deadly United striker.

“I think he’s a very good player. It’s difficult because he can do a lot and he’s very fast.”

“I’m also good at reading spaces, so it’s always a challenge to play against this type of play, but it’s also exciting. It’s our mission.”
