Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman has accused Riqui Puig of his game plan ahead of the club’s presentation match against Elche in the Gamper Trophy back in September.
Koeman confronted Puig for leaking information to the press and he immediately recommended that the attacking midfielder should be loaned out as his first-team action will be limited.
According to El Pais journalist Juan Irigigoyen, who claims Koeman was not too happy with the leak and confronted Puig in the dressing room in front of the rest of the squad.” You are a mole”, Koeman is alleged to have said.
Puig has been doing all he can to break into the first team during the days of Ernesto Valverde and Quique Setien as both managers did not consider him good enough to command a starting role.
Barcelona will be up against Levante on Sunday evening in the La Liga.
