A number of major complaints surrounding the possible appointment of Ajax coach Erik ten Hag at FC Barcelona have surfaced online on Monday.
Suárez returns to chase Koeman
The issue of the bench at Camp Nou, of course, has continued to dominate the headlines for the past 48 hours.
This comes with the Blaugrana falling to another defeat on Saturday night.
Just days after a 3-0 beating at the hands of Benfica in the Champions League, Ronald Koeman and company. made the trip to Wanda Metropolitano, for a La Liga showdown with champion Atlético de Madrid.
And when the final whistle sounded in the Spanish capital, Barça fell further into despair.
The latest in a series of abject and lifeless performances finally saw the visitors killed by two goals to nothing, to slide to a humble ninth place in the La Liga table.
Thomas Lemar opened the match scoring from the start, before a familiar face condemned Barça to a deserved second defeat in the space of three days:

Ten witch lined up?
In turn, with Barcelona’s hopes of mounting a genuine La Liga title challenge that seems less and less realistic every week, and the European efforts of the Catalan giants having culminated in back-to-back 3-0 losses, it shouldn’t be a surprise to Hear that calls have begun to increase for Ronald Koeman to be dismissed with immediate effect.
The Blaugrana faithful have made no secret of their desire for the Dutchman to carry on, with club legend Xavi Hernández being the favorite to replace him on the Camp Nou bench.
However, as described above, during the last 24 hours, a completely different name has been heavily promoted as a potential instillation in Catalonia.
The strategist in question? Erik ten Hag.
Ten Hag, of course a compatriot of Koeman, is the current Ajax coach of the Eredivisie heavyweights. The 51-year-old has long been praised for his footballing flair across the continent, and the bright start to Ajax’s new campaign has apparently drawn attention in Barcelona.
According to a report from the Spanish media. The National, Joan Laporta and company have not only aligned Ten Hag. as a possible successor to Koeman, but, in fact, there is already an ‘agreement in principle’ for the Dutchman to take the reins at the Camp Nou.
Such an agreement would make his arrival a reality in the summer of 2022, so as not to shake the boat in the middle of the Ajax season.
Not only that, but it is also claimed that ten Hag has already come up with a list of transfer goals for his potential future employers.
The former Utrecht boss is said to have his eyes on Matthijs de Ligt and Donny van de Beek, who lined up under his watch at Ajax: Erling Haaland, Dani Olmo and Ryan Gravenberch.
