After Joan Laporta, his president publicly supported Ronald Koeman in Barcelona’s future, it looks like things are not going well for him.
Supporting managers in public by presidents usually leads to sackings, as Barcelona’s financial crisis might prove.
Koeman must fulfill criteria like winning major honours and recruiting young players. It remains to be seen whether he is able to meet these requirements before he gets the boot.
Laporta was at a press conference about the signing Luuk de Jong. He was also asked questions about Koeman’s career, though history suggests that he will not be there for long.
Laporta stated, “Everyone has their own way of dealing with one another. I deal with everybody in a clear and direct way.”
He has my complete support. I also respect him. My respect. Because I’m a big football fan, I can make comments on certain aspects.
Roberto Martinez was selected as an unqualified candidate for the Barcelona job. It might not seem so far-fetched after all.
The Camp Nou could use his attacking style with Belgium; it’s a style English supporters may recall from Everton’s fifth-placed finish.
The manager is Catalonian and could make it a homecoming for the Balaguer-born boss.
