Koeman takes swipe at president Joan Laporta

Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman has engaged in a public war of words with president Joan Laporta, insisting he is the sole reason the club ‘has a future’.

Koeman joined the club in the summer of 2020 and has overseen a period of real transition at Camp Nou, but there has always been a feeling that he is seen by those at the club as more of a temporary coach – a sentiment which Barcelona’s actions haven’t exactly helped.

Laporta spent two weeks in the summer looking for a replacement for Koeman before ‘committing’ to him again, and the president has since gone public to tell Koeman that he must earn a new contract, setting the Dutchman targets which he must hit if he wants to keep his job.

Koeman was left frustrated by Laporta’s willingness to speak publicly about the situation, and he let his tension boil over in a recent interview with NOS.

“My relationship with Laporta has improved, but something happened last week that I think is not right,” he said. “He was suggesting that the coach does not have all the power. He spoke too much and was not wise on two occasions.
