Barcelona board puts Rijkaard on notice
Barca must travel to Valencia and also face Real Madrid at the Nou Camp before the Liga's winter recess and the board have made Rijkaard aware that their patience has run out. Edmilson's "black sheep" comments this week have only strengthened board opinion that Rijkaard is losing authority in the dressing room and the same mistakes of last season are being repeated.
The Dutchman - and Barca's senior players - have been put on notice. If attitudes and form do not improve, then major changes will be made during the winter market.
