An entirely surprising name has come to the fore in the French media today, as a possible replacement for Ronald Koeman at Barcelona.
Concerns in Catalonia
The subject of the future of the Dutch Koeman at the Camp Nou, of course, has been under the microscope in an important way in recent times.
This is because Barça have endured a disappointing opening to the new campaign, en route to just two wins in the club’s first five outings.
The Blaugrana’s last lost points were revealed on Thursday night, when the latest in a series of increasingly disappointing performances forced them to settle for a share of the spoils in Cádiz.
In defending Ronald Koeman, the former Everton boss has already been forced to deal with a host of personnel issues so far in 2021/22, while recovering from the loss of Lionel Messi has always been a considerable challenge.
However, this doesn’t take away from the fact that the Dutchman, in total, seemed completely out of his league lately.
A baffling decision after a baffling decision has seen the Blaugrana faithful make their desire for change on the club bench clear, with Koeman’s tactical ineptitude on full display when the 58-year-old used key defender Gerard Piqué as a center forward. during a recent meeting with Granada.
