Limited trust for Koeman speaking today

Ronald Koeman will remain at least in front of the bench FC Barcelona until tomorrow’s game Thursday (10pm / Movistar LaLiga) at Cadiz. Despite the new setback (1-1) against him grenade, and although some information already gave by liquidated the Dutch coach, sources of the Barcelona club consulted by MD assure that Koeman will sit on the bench Barça morning. Although no one dares to ensure that he does so on Sunday at the Camp Nou (4.15pm) against him I raised in the event of another adverse outcome. The calm is tense on Can Barça and trust in the hero of Wembley it is limited. More than ever there is talk now from game to game, which shows the provisional nature of the coach.

That Koeman continue at the head of the team and be the man who will appear today (1:00 p.m.) in the previous duel against him Cadiz It does not imply that the technical secretariat is not working to activate a plan B if the results are not as expected in the remainder of the week or in subsequent meetings such as the transcendental against Benfica and Athletic, Wednesday 29 and Saturday 2, both away from home. A new stumble in Cadiz Yes it could precipitate the removal of Koeman but as long as the board of Laporta had his relief tied well.

Now as reported RAC1, the idea is not that the coach who can come to replace Koeman be a bridge coach, but someone capable of becoming the pillar of the new sports project. This is where names like Xavi Hernandez and Robert Martinez, which fit with the Cruyffista philosophy that the president wants to see translated on the field of play Joan Laporta.

Ronald, who trusts the return of Ansu (could do it on Sunday) and other injured like Dembélé and Omen (at the end of October) to straighten the course and be able to apply a more offensive system with open ends, he needs two wins against Cadiz and I raised to take a breath to Lisbon and Madrid but if he did not pass those two exams either, it would be more than complicated.

Taking into account that in the hypothetical case that Koeman do not exhaust your contract (expires in 2022), there would no longer be an umbrella to protect yourself, the president Laporta and your board want to take reasonable time to choose the replacement for Ronald. The choice should be very thoughtful and betting heavily on him. In the club they are aware of the problems that a change can imply with the course started and that the scenario of having a coach could not be repeated without being sufficiently reinforced and with the general consensus of the environment to support him, something that does not happen with Koeman for months. In addition, the calendar will not be easy after the league parenthesis with Valencia, Dynamo Kiev and Madrid visiting the Camp Nou between October 17 and 24.

At the club they want to be convinced of the coach who could relieve Koeman, not only to reverse the current situation, but also to lead the future sports project for most of the current term. But it is true that when the time comes to make a drastic decision, there would also be more time during the break for the new coach to land and not in the middle of a relentless game plan.

Unlike the match against him Bayern, where after it there was an emergency summit in the same Camp Nou to assess the 0-3 between the president, Joan Laporta, the sports vice president, Rafa Yuste, and the football director, Mateu alemany. A margin was then given to Koeman to see the team’s response. On Monday that tension was not repeated. Alemany and Ramon Planes, technical secretary, they did go down to the locker room to chat with Koeman, but not to communicate anything to him about his future.

To all this, Laporta, asked about the future of Ronald At the office door, he responded by summoning the ‘gent blaugrana’: “To cheer on the team. Let the fans continue to cheer ”. And today he speaks Koeman.

This is the reassuring message from Joan Laporta to the Barça fans
