Joan Laporta said, “FC Barcelona wishes to thanks for his services to the club and wishes him all the best in his professional career.”
The departure of Koeman will be heartbreaking for many as he won them their first European Cup in 1992. The defeat to Rayo Vallecano has left Barcelona at ninth in La Liga with 15 points, six behind Real Madrid. Barcelona is on the third number in their group E. Barca has lost their two opening matches. First, they lost to Bayern Munich and then lost to Benfica. It seemed disappointing when Barcelona lost to Rayo Vallecano and their supporter started taunting Barcelona’s players and the manager.
Barcelona President about Koeman:
“FC Barcelona has relieved Ronald Koeman of his duties as first-team coach,” an official club statement read after the 1-0 loss.
The statement continued: “The president of the club, Joan Laporta, informed him of the decision after the defeat against Rayo Vallecano. Ronald Koeman will say goodbye to the squad on Thursday at the Ciutat Esportiva. FC Barcelona wishes to thank him for his service to the club and wishes him all the best in his professional career.”
Moreover, Koeman managed the Netherlands before August 2020 when he resigned to manage Barcelona. Now, the search for a new candidate for the manager will start soon. Xavi is considered as an early front runner for Barcelona. But whoever comes, he has to do hard work as the team is facing hard times.
