Ronald Koeman will not continue as coach of Barcelona

Ronald Koeman will not continue as coach of Barcelona next season according to a report carried by Mundo Deportivo. Roger Saperas, a journalist reporting on RAC1, revealed that Barcelona are 99% sure that the Dutchman won’t lead the club beyond the culmination of this campaign despite the fact he has another year on his contract.

Koeman met with Barcelona president Joan Laporta last Thursday for a two-and-a-half hour lunch, and it’s understood the meeting went well. But the reality of Barcelona’s late-season collapse, where they dropped points against Atletico Madrid and Levante and lost to Granada and Celta Vigo at home to blow a shot at the title, means that the only thing that would save Koeman would be if Barcelona couldn’t find a suitable alternative.

Lionel Messi

Koeman was never Laporta’s man, with disgraced ex-president Josep Maria Bartomeu appointing him in the summer. The Blaugrana have made strides in some ways during a difficult season, winning the Copa del Rey. But ultimately the sentiment emanating from Camp Nou is that Laporta’s decided the time has come for a change.

  5. Johannes Esomar says:

    A coach who kicked out star players like Luis Suares and others who are well connected emotionally and in the field with Messi is literally a bad coach, He shouldn’t have been assigned the job. Kick him out right away.

    1. John Samson says:

      Yes he must leave. He came like he knew the problem of Barcelona fc and how to solve it but he made it worse selling Suarez who’s goals could have easily helped the club get the tittle.

    Koeman is not the problem of Barcelona, the team needs restructuring and that’s what he has been trying to do, the fault is from the players who always depends on messi always. For me koeman is ideal
