The secret WhatsApp message sent by Barcelona chief Joan Laporta to Ronald Koeman has surfaced.
After losing to Atletico Madrid over the weekend, Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman is fighting for his job.
According to rumors, Barcelona president Joan Laporta sent a WhatsApp message to other members of the club’s board of directors explaining his choice to keep Ronald Koeman. At the Nou Camp, the season has gotten off to a shaky start. Despite the fact that things are getting worse, a management change is not imminent.
Barcelona had a disastrous summer, losing Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann while also failing to sign some of the game’s greatest players.
They’ve struggled to get rolling in the short period since.
After overseeing the club’s 3-0 Champions League thrashing by Benfica in midweek, Koeman was already under fire ahead of Saturday’s 2-0 loss against Atletico.
Barcelona, on the other hand, decided not to fire him before their La Liga match at the weekend.
And according to Sport, Laporta sent a WhatsApp message to other Barcelona board members explaining his choice to keep Koeman.
According to reports, the two individuals barely talked to one other on the journey back from Portugal.
Despite the fact that the two were seated next to each other.
Laporta, on the other hand, decided it was fair to call Koeman and speak with him about his circumstances as well as their recent results.
Koeman was taken aback during that phone call.
DON’T MISSSRonaldo could prevent Man Utd from appointing Conte.
Conte’s comments about Nuno’s job at Tottenham have been criticized.
Arsenal made the proper decision to sell Guendouzi based on his recent actions.
But it was his statements that pleased Laporta sufficiently for the Barcelona manager to give him a vote of confidence before the defeat.
Following that, Laporta felt compelled to WhatsApp other members of the club’s hierarchy to explain why he chose to stick rather than twist.
Many had expected the former Everton and Southampton manager to be dismissed of his duties when they awoke on Saturday.
However, Laporta stated that Koeman adores the club and that the Dutchman “assumed responsibility for guiding the team at a period of utmost sport and institutional turmoil.”
It remains to be seen where Barcelona will go from here.
However, when the situation worsens, Koeman will have to strive to turn things around.
He made it plain after the defeat to Atletico that negotiations with Laporta went well, and that the Barcelona board was correct to stay by him.
“This is something I discussed with the president yesterday,” said the author of “Brinkwire Summary News.”
