Barcelona board has doubts over boss Ronald Koeman

Barcelona suffered a painful defeat in El Clasico against Real Madrid this weekend in a result which could have a big impact on the club’s La Liga title ambitions.

The appointment of Joan Laporta as the club’s new president last month had the potential to prompt a change of direction in the dugout.

Ronald Koeman was appointed last summer by the club’s former president Josep Maria Bartomeu and a change of board may have prompted a potential change in direction in the dugout.

However, at the end of last month a wave of reports – led by Catalan outlet Esport3 – claimed that Koeman had already been assured of his position beyond this summer by the new board, regardless of the side’s results for the remainder of the campaign.

Now, a report in La Sexta claims that there are doubts over the Dutchman in the corridors of power at the Camp Nou and other potential candidates have already been discussed.

It follows a report from Cadena Ser earlier in the day that the Blaugrana board had disagreed with Koeman on blaming VAR for the defeat on Saturday evening.

    But laportar promised that he is going to sign xavi i don’t think ronald koeman can coach Bacelona because he has not win any big match pls we need xavi and we also need a good stricker in Barcelona

      Xavi is never a coach to coach a club like Barcelona where most of his old playmates are still on yet.

    Ronald koeman didn’t know what he’s doing at all putting pedri in El classico is good but since he realized the player is not will to the game he have to substitute him and mid-feild like pedri are not the ideal replacement of ineaste or xavi a player having chance put can’t did even 1 goal attempt puig
    is better than him but the coach doesn’t want him and don’t even know how to did a substitute

    1. Hiskia says:

      Absolutely , puig should be ahead of pedri in the packing order

  4. David says:

    And messi was running like a pregnant goat allover the field

    They were horrible. Madrid were way better

  6. Pedro says:

    Look at the team Koeman has to work with. A lot of youngsters and a few unfit top players. He’s doing a great job at Barcelona. Look at the streak the team, guided by Koeman has made..

    When you win, everyone is your friend. But when you lose, suddenly your are unfit to coach. Ow please, give yourself a break

    Haaland!!!!!?

  8. Mapia says:

    Haaland!

  9. Tobi says:

    Even xavi is not a better option for the club as I see it even koeman is better and more experience as a coach than xavi

  10. Zino says:

    Koeman.. did not know how to deal with Barcelona, what’s d need of buying pjanic when you can’t play him,Puig in the other hand is on bench,our strong defender umtiti is unfavoured please I think we need another coach,like xavi am sure barca will be on fire…players like neymar, alaba, aguero should be Barca’s top chase

      Waarom moet hij weg, koeman heeft het voetbal terug gebracht bij Barca. Jonge spelers de kans gegeven. Een half geleden stonden ze nog 15 punten achter. Niemand gaf nog iets over Barca. Ze verliezen 1 wedstrijd en was veel beter en 70 % balbezit tegen real Madrid. En nu krijgt hij kritiek ! Hij kan nog 2 prijzen winnen ! Ik heb respect voor hem. Barca. moet blij zijn met Koeman.

    Hij moet het doen met deze spelers wat hij heeft, er is geen geld voor nieuwe spelers. Ik heb veel respect voor Koeman. Ze moeten opletten met nieuwe miskopen !!
