The daily Sport takes stock on Tuesday on the future of Ronald Koeman in Barcelona. A new point with Joan Laporta will be made during the day.
FC Barcelona is active behind the scenes to define the contours of its next team. This obviously concerns the workforce of the first team, which should be largely remodeled, but also the coach, where Ronald Koeman’s position has been weakened by a chaotic end of the season. The Dutch technician will be fixed. According to daily information Sport, a new meeting between Koeman and his leaders will take place on Tuesday. The current Barca coach will meet with President Joan Laporta and Vice-President Rafael Yuste.
Koeman announced on departure but …
So what trend is emerging? The Catalan daily explains that if Laporta left at the start with the prospect of continuing the adventure with Ronald Koeman, the loss of the title and the poor performances of recent weeks have placed him in an ejection seat. Only downsides: the financial situation of Barça and the market. A dismissal of the Dutch, contractually linked to the club until 2022, would generate a significant cost for the club, already financially asphyxiated. On the other hand, the two “chosen” to succeed Koeman, Hansi Flick and Xavi, remain difficult tracks to finalize. The German has hinted that he will favor his national team, while the former Blaugrana maestro remains very undecided and demands guarantees. Laporta knows what to expect. At present, Koeman would have a one in two chance of remaining in his post.
