Joan Laporta holds meeting with Barcelona board members until 2am after Bayern defeat

Joan Laporta is said to have held an emergency meeting of sorts early this morning on the back of Barcelona’s heavy defeat to Bayern Munich.

The Blaugrana lost 3-0 at home in their Champions League opener, Thomas Muller opening the scoring before Robert Lewandowski scored a brace.

Unsurprisingly, the defeat has not gone down well with Barcelona fans, or indeed the men currently in charge of the club.

In fact, according to Sport, Laporta held a meeting with board members Mateu Alemany and Rafa Yuste straight after the game.

It’s reported the meeting went on until the early hours of the morning, with none of the three men leaving Camp Nou until 2am.

Just what the meeting was about remains to be seen, and it is not expected that any rash decision will be made on Ronald Koeman on the back of this defeat.

But news of the meeting will be further cause for the Dutchman to sit uncomfortably, even if he has been dealt a poor hand.

Putting up a good fight against Bayern was always going to be a tough task after losing Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann this summer, and it must be said that there was a degree of fortune for two of the three goals.

    The defeat against Bayern was a due unnecessary defensive error and timely cover.the two goals by Robert was a rebound which have to be cleared if our defender(s) cover up to clear the ball and so also after the first goal, the manager get to realise that Barcelona midfield has been over powered by the visitors, while he has experience players like coutinho on bench who later came on when the manager realise that most of our players are not only tired but cant get the tread to the niddle ,: luu is a good player but making him a starter is very unideal
    Ronald koeman just have to move wisely and avoid been sentiment

    The last sentence of the article is the problem of Koeman. He always select his team with sentiment even the substitutes that he makes when Barcelona is winning is always with sentiment. There’s no way he can succeed in Barcelona with this character. And it is obvious that this character is part of him. This is the character that made Barcelona to loose the title last season. If serious decision is not made now, Barcelona in Spain will become another Arsenal of England. A stitch in time saves nine.
