He is a very strange Manager - Pjanic publicly blasts Ronald Koeman after his move to Besiktas

Former Barcelona midfielder Miralem Pjanic was no a happy man following his departure from Barca, calling out Ronald Koeman in his first interview as a Besiktas player, following his move to he Turkish side 2 nights ago.

Pjanic: "Koeman treated me disrespectfully. He never talked to me about what he expected from me, like others would always do. This was already weird. I think I am a good player with a professional attitude but he is a very weird manager. One I never experienced before." [@marca]

It's no secret that Pjanic had his personal problems with Ronald Koeman during his time at Barca. The Dutchman did not give him (Pjanic) much playing time, plus he never gave a reason why he wasn't playing the Bosnian international.

Pjanić continues...

🗣 "...I have reached the level of Juventus and Barça. I know that I can play for this team, they just haven't given me the chance to compete, to join a group, to help more."

It was not an easy position to be in for a World Class player as Miralem Pjanic, who wanted to help the team fight for titles. But Koeman made his time at Barca a very difficult one to look back on.

Pjanić goes on...

🗣 "I have never talked about these things, but I think it is important to know what I have really gone through...I accept everything and it is okay...I will fight until the end for myself because I know what I can give."

Pjanic lowered his wage to 60% before agreeing to join Besiktas this summer, Barca will handle 20% of the wage, while his new club will pay the rest. Good Luck on your new adventure Miralem!!
