Barcelona president Joan Laporta said in a conversation with El Chiringuito, that everyone in the club is responsible for their part of the job, but that all together they wish the coach well and that his team plays in the right way.
Meanwhile, the entire Spanish sports public writes about the dismissal of Ronald Koeman, as well as that a possible failure against Cadiz tonight (22.00) could be his last in the Catalan club. "Everyone is responsible for their actions, we are responsible for managing the club.
When making a decision, we must weigh it well, it must be made at the right time, and economic, sports and social circumstances must be taken into account." "We are with the coach and what we want is that things are going well for him.
All coaches, not only Koeman, are conditioned to achieve results, but in the case of Barcelona it's also about the way they play." "But Koeman is our coach and we are with him today ", Laporta remained somewhat vague.
Barcelona have two wins and two draws at the start of the season in the Primera, while at the start of the Champions League they suffered a heavy defeat by Bayern at the Nou Camp.
In the last round, a draw with Granada followed (1: 1), so the match in Cadiz is very important for his team.
The experienced strategist surprised the entire public yesterday by going to a press conference, reading a personal statement, in which he asked for patience for the young team and players, and then left. "We are in a difficult moment and I think we have to have a lot of faith and hope in a good result against Cadiz, because situations like this are best to overcome through results."
"We will continue to fight. At the last minute we learned that Koeman wanted to make this kind of statement. Well, he has an obligation to attend a press conference and he is free to answer or express himself as he wants," Laporta added.
It is obvious that Laporta wants to calm down the situation, and try to take the pressure off the coach, but it is obvious that things inside the club are not working in the best way. Koeman will have a difficult task, and he is aware that he does not have a playing staff that can achieve bigger goals.
However, given Barcelona's ambitions, they will have to strive for the biggest goals, and that will not be an easy task. It is very difficult to be the coach of Barcelona at the moment, but maybe Koeman's experience will decide and Barcelona will finally catch the right rhythm.
