If the management of Barcelona was not sure whether to give Ronald Koeman a chance to lead the team for the weekend against Levante, that trouble was stopped by the referee of the match in Cadiz, Carlos Grande. In the last seconds of the match, the referee showed a red card to the nervous Koeman because of the protest and thus "took him off" the bench for the next round match, which Barcelona will play at home against Levante.
This could also push the decision of the club's leader to dismiss Koeman, under whose baton Barcelona looks desperate. Despite the fact that Lionel Messi, the most important player in the last 15 years of the club from the Nou Camp, is no longer in the team, the Catalans still do not have such a bad team that they cannot beat Granada or Cadiz.
Maybe the Dutchman would have received a shot card earlier if Barça did not have to financially compensate him for the contract he has until the end of the season. But now Joan Laporta and his associates will have to decide: whether to sacrifice ten million euros or to try to change this season in a positive way After the red card in Cadiz, the management was given a few days to decide what to do with Koeman.
But, it could very easily happen that the walk to the locker room that referee Grande showed the Dutchman is also the final "word" of the Barcelona coach in that position.
Pique on the game
Barcelona looks like a house on the draft, they can't put themselves together on the field, but Gerard Pique is not giving up.
After the draw with Cadiz (0: 0), which is the third consecutive game of Barcelona without a victory, Pique said that he does not give up the fight for all the trophies that are on the menu. "I don't wear the Barcelona jersey to be satisfied with the second or third place or the quarterfinals of the Champions League.
I want victories, trophies, to win every game and win every trophy ", said Pique He firmly believes that better days for Barcelona will come very soon. "I am convinced that despite the weak start, we will fight for the title.
The team has a good spirit, the guys are willing to fight. Sometimes things don't go the way you want them to, but that's the way it is. Things like this happen in football, and then you have to know how to endure them."
Barça welcomes Levante on Sunday and Pique believes that a turnaround will start from that match. "We feel that the fans are with us, regardless of the complicated situation. We have been at the elite level for 12 years, and now we have to face this reality.
I am convinced that we will win on Sunday and that things will start to turn around. I am convinced that we will fight for the trophies until the end ", Gerard Pique concluded
