Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman admits Memphis Depay has been hit by a form slump.

Koeman was speaking today ahead of their midweek clash with Rayo Vallecano.

On his Holland striker, the coach said: "I know Memphis well and in the last games he has not been able to be decisive, he knows it, he is self-critical and we try to improve things to see where he can make the play or not. He knows perfectly that he has to improve."

Koeman was also asked if he's enjoying the job.

He stated: "There are things as a coach that you don't like, but I like being with the players, preparing the games, analysing and having to decide is what I like. The other day I loved the game, not the result because it was a Clasico, but the atmosphere.

"After a year or so, having this atmosphere on the field in a match that was decided by details. We made merits for another result, we need a little luck. These things are the ones I like, and if a day comes when I don't enjoy it, I'll go and dedicate myself to playing golf five days a week. I understand that it is a delicate situation, but there is a future in this club."
