58-year-old Dutch specialist Ronald Koeman is on the verge of being fired. This is a fact that is no longer denied either in Spain, or in the capital of Catalonia, or at Camp Nou. The future of Ronald Koeman can now finally be decided by any next game of his players.
When will Koeman leave Barcelona? This week, this month or will he make it to the end of the season? Do you have any ideas on it? If you want to make a bet on it, we recommend you mobile online football betting on 22Bet website.
When the “blue garnet” at the start of the Spanish championship after a 4: 2 victory over Real Sociedad drew 1: 1 with Athletic, and then barely broke the resistance of Getafe (2: 1) at home, there was a slight bewilderment … When, in the first round of the Champions League, they were beaten hard by Bayern Munich (0: 3) in the first round of the Champions League, this bewilderment was transformed from an easy one into a serious concern. Well, and last weekend, “Blaugranas” again in their field parted 1: 1 with “Granada”, having managed to score a saving goal only in the 90th minute.
Such a series of results made it clear that this season Barcelona are unlikely to be able to fight for any prizes or anywhere, and this, in turn, seriously shook the chair under Koeman. It is not for nothing that the next day after the embarrassment with Granada, information sources (primarily Spanish) exploded with news about the likely resignation of the Dutchman. The message for this was not taken from the ceiling, but from the staff of the club’s management, namely, its Board of Directors. There were enough supporters for the team to move on without Koeman.
Joan Laporta himself, to put it mildly, is dumbfounded from everything that is happening, but he does not intend to chop off the shoulder. He knows best the financial situation of the club. An early separation from any mentor is an additional financial expense. Nobody canceled compensations and so on yet. However, sources close to the club leadership still claim that Laporta is on a strong platoon. A new blooper from the netherlands could act as a trigger. And then he is unlikely to be stopped even by the fact that in case of an early parting with Ronald Koeman, Barcelona will have to pay a specialist about 12 million euros.
