FC Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman believes that his team should not complain that the 'Clásico' with Real Madrid will be played on Saturday at the training complex of the 'Koninklijke'.
Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp spoke of a training field on Wednesday after the lost Champions League game in Madrid.
Real will play all its home games at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stéfano this season because Estadio Santiago Bernabéu is being renovated.
The training complex, which is named after honorary chairman and former player Alfredo Di Stéfano, consists of small stands and, according to Klopp, would have the appearance of a "stadium net".
"It is an attempt to discredit a big club like Real Madrid. I find it disparaging," said Koeman at his press conference on Friday afternoon when he was confronted with Klopp's comment after Real Madrid-Liverpool (3-1).
"They have made use of the corona period without an audience by renovating the stadium. I think that was a good choice," continued the Dutchman, who is facing his second 'Clásico' as coach of FC Barcelona.
"It is actually more difficult for players to play without supporters. Real is used to this stadium and the other teams will have to play there, that's just the case. We know that the grass will be okay anyway. not important at all to me. "
Real Madrid-FC Barcelona (kick-off 9 p.m.) is a key match in the battle for the Spanish national title.
Due to a breakdown of Atlético Madrid, Barcelona has come closer to the leader.
Real Madrid is three points behind the fellow townsman, who will meet Real Betis on Sunday.
There are still nine matches to play in La Liga.
