Ronald Koeman addresses Barcelona squad before they disband for the summer

Barcelona’s season came to an end quietly last night against Eibar up at Ipurua, with the squad meeting this morning at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper according to Diario Sport for a debrief before heading their separate ways.

Ronald Koeman addressed the squad and they said their goodbyes, also wishing each other luck ahead of their respective international commitments. They discussed the way the season went and the Copa del Rey title they managed to win. All of the squad attended except for Pedri, who’s already on vacation.

Barcelona’s next training session will take place in July, when preseason for the 2021/22 campaign will kick off in earnest. Between now and then, much change is expected.

Departures and arrivals are expected, as well as potentially a new coach. Joan Laporta is cogniscent that he needs to act decisively and aggressively if he’s to build a team capable of fighting for the Champions League once again.

  1. Pedri says:

    Yesssss goodbye koeman and thanks for nothing, and never come back.

  2. Babangida Othman says:

    I have mix feelings if koeman was retained his last games cast some doubts over his management and approach with decisive and winning big games, but he build a formidable squad that needs two or three alternations and because of that the management should be very careful if they want to replace him,

    1. Reetsang jani says:

      Problems escalated with the GETAFE incident involving MINGIUEZA, what he did to the player after subbing him was so unprofessional.
      Players saw it and i can tell they were rackled by the manager’s behavior.
      Since then, the players’ confidence looked to have taken a nosedive

    We need xavi

  4. Pedri says:

    The biggest failure in the history of Barcelona since the very beginning of the season did everything wrong, he did not build any team but made nonsense and invented hot water in the 21st century, nonsense.
    World-class players like the Pjanic to sit on the bench not to play so that is to the condemnation of every coach.
    If Miralem Pjanic had played in all matches for at least 45 minutes, the outcome would have been 100% better in the end.
    Barcelona needs a new coach with more optimism and cooperation with the players, someone who will be loved by both the players and the fans, and that is definitely not koeman.

    1. Jonah says:

      I have watched pjanic play some minutes this season
      He was totally awful.
      The Pjanic that plays for Bosnia clearly isn’t the version we’re seeing at Barcelona.

      Just like Griezmann for France compared to Barcelona

  5. Trotman says:

    Barcelona are ungrateful to Koeman just use him but will regret it too much nasty politics
    He deserves a chance one trophy and a third

  6. Hameed says:

    So call koeman isn’t that coach that can take Barcelona for me he should never come back,so that Lionel will stay.please can someone help me tell Messi to atlist go to another club for a saeson! my ears had a enough from opposition club that Messi can’t play at another club.i’m hameed Barcelona fan

  7. Peter G. Giaway says:

    I believe Koeman need to be time At least until this 2021 can completely end, I mean he should take charge of the after this break, when there is no improvement from him then they can take their decision.
    To me he tried his best to take the team from 12th place up to 3rd also wining a trophy.

  8. Jeff Doughty says:

    Koeman’s reluctance to play Puig and stubbornness to play pique game after game, when his best days are well behind him will be his downfall. The team has so much talent! but needs an infusion of speed and maybe if Messi decides to go, they will take a step back to take 3 steps forward!

  9. Ahmed Adamu says:

    Never mind Ronald Coman we know your intension and then else we don’t to know what tomorrow bring
