Barcelona has started with very bad foot his walk in this Champions League. Despite the fact that Bayern were favorites, receiving a 0-3 at home in the first game is a very hard blow at all levels in the club. Of course, one of the most noted after this hit was Ronald Koeman.
The Dutchman last year saved the season thanks to the Copa del Rey. That helped Laporta to leave him fulfill the second year of contract. However, his performance in league (3rd with 78 points) and in the Champions League (He was beaten in the second round by the Paris saint germain) left a lot to be desired.
This course has already started regular, with the march of Lionel messi to the Gallic team. What happened yesterday is a reflection of how far Barcelona is from the greats of Europe. Although Laporta has publicly said that trusts Koeman and that he gets along very well with him, the truth is that in the end it is the results that determine whether or not a coach remains in charge of any team.
In the league the first matches they have been good, at least in terms of results. And the season has just begun. Despite the hard score yesterday, it seems that Koeman’s continuity is not in jeopardy. At the moment at least.
Basically because it would seem illogical that was fired after the president’s public endorsement, and because it is still early and firing a coach in September can be fatal for the course of a team. Yes, as Koeman does not straighten the situation, its continuity will be seriously jeopardized.
