Under Ronald Koeman, Joan Laporta suggested a ‘logical solution’ to the Barcelona situation.
At Barcelona, Ronald Koeman appears to be on the verge of losing his job.
The ‘logical remedy’ to Barcelona’s difficulties has been suggested to president Joan Laporta. On Saturday, Ronald Koeman’s side were trounced 2-0 by Atletico Madrid, putting him under even more pressure.
Koeman’s job is on the line, with reports claiming that the former Everton and Southampton manager will be fired during the forthcoming international break.
The 58-year-old has denied the allegations and stated that he has Laporta’s support to continue.
However, the president of Barcelona will undoubtedly be troubled by a poor run of form that dates back to the conclusion of last season.
Last season, the Blaugrana finished third in LaLiga, their lowest place since 2008. They have only won one of their last six matches in all competitions, including two 3-0 losses in their Champions League openers against Bayern Munich and Benfica.
Following their most recent defeat, which was exacerbated by former Barcelona attacker Luis Suarez, Koeman appeared resigned.
Following a handful of phone chats during the week, he insisted that his hostile relationship with Laporta had improved.
However, rumors that Koeman may leave shortly continues to grow. Former midfielder Xavi Hernandez is one name that has been mentioned as a possible successor.
According to The Athletic, Laporta has a “logical response” to the issues he is facing. That is, the club’s rebuilding efforts should be focused on its renowned academy, La Masia.
Laporta has been informed that he needs to hire a head coach who knows how to bring out the best in young players.
“However, reasoning is in short supply around the club right now,” the person added.
The role has been connected to Roberto Martinez, Andrea Pirlo, Antonio Conte, Brendan Rodgers, Phillip Cocu, and Marcelo Gallardo.
Sergi Barjaun, the club’s B-team coach, has also been mentioned as a potential Koeman replacement.
“We don’t have enough guys who can stretch the field.” And this is really noticeable against a rival like Atletico Madrid,” Koeman told reporters after the defeat. ” “I spoke to the president yesterday, and I spoke to him this morning,” he said of his talks with Laporta. We’ve been talking about the team, the coaching staff, and the club.
“It’s all starting to make sense now.” The statement will help to de-stress the situation.
“Laporta called me last night and said, ‘Brinkwire Summary News,'” says the narrator.
