In order to Ronald Koeman the two parties what is left to the Barcelona League will be two finals. The Dutch coach is walking on the razor’s edge again, something that has happened several times this season (he started with the sad record of being the worst coach in 40 years in domestic competition), but this time with summer ahead. which allows a script change.
The accounts still allow him to be optimistic in order to win the national championship and, with this, put a double in his pocket to argue before his critics that he should continue on the culé bench. Only the Cup is not enough so that the scales tip in their favor.
After the draw with Levante, Koeman himself referred to the matter, aware that they are going to fall everywhere, but he feels safe for the moment. “Coaches are always questioned. But I understand that after the second half there are questions. We are disappointed and we wonder what happened in the second half. We have to move on.

Laporta already tested him during the elections, and although has a contract with the ‘gunners’ until 2023, the drift of the London club and the temptation to reach a winning club like Barcelona are strong. Nothing disposable.
The coach of the River plate He has been receiving calls from Europe for a long time. The ‘Doll’ wants to make the leap to a big league on the old continent, and his style is very popular at the Camp Nou. The possibility of directing Messi You can decide your decision if you decide to get out of the Millionaires.
Against him: the aroma of ‘Tata’ Martino. The failure of the current coach of Mexico is still relatively recent in the collective mind of the Catalans and they fear that something similar will happen to Gallardo due to his lack of experience outside Argentina. In France they also sigh for him and Olympique de Lyon will bid.
