Some members of the Barcelona board have reportedly asked Joan Laporta to fire Ronald Koeman. However, the financial situation of the club prevents them from making such a drastic decision.
According to a report in WHAT, TV3 has exclusive information that the Barcelona board members are not happy with Ronald Koeman. They want the manager to be fired after the Catalan side were humiliated in the Champions League by Bayern Munich.
Joan Laporta has reportedly yet to make a decision on the future of the Barcelona manager as they will have to pay more than £ 10 million to fire him. Ronald Koeman’s contract with the Catalan club ends next summer, and Xavi has been promoted to take over.
Ronald Koeman on Barcelona’s loss to Bayern Munich
Ronald Koeman has admitted that his team is not on par with Bayern Munich and is therefore proud of the way his players performed in the 3-0 defeat. The Dutchman states that they must be realistic about the situation and said:
“You have to be realistic in life. Our young players showed that we have a future and we have many players to come back from injuries. It is what it is. We know we are missing a lot of players in attack and I have to wait a few weeks to have more options. and more speed in the future. I don’t want to look for excuses but everyone knows the problems we had with players who were not available.
“It is very hard to play against a team like Bayern when you don’t have a lot of speed up front. We have to accept it and keep working. And we have to recognize the team we are up against. Hurting a team like Bayern has to be in his best moment and you have to admit it when the other team is better. But I’m a little tired of talking about the same thing, in a few weeks the team will be different because we will have more players available and we will be more fit. “
Barcelona have been undefeated in LaLiga this season and could go to the top of the table if they win their match against Sevilla.
