Barcelona president Laporta addressed stunned players - without Koeman present

Barcelona president Joan Laporta addressed the players after last night's defeat at Benfica - without coach Ronald Koeman being present.

AS says after the 3-0 Champions League defeat, Laporta visited the away dressing room of the Da Luz stadium to console the players.

Once again, Laporta put up an optimistic front to spur them out of this situation, ensuring that the club has a plan to "fix" things.

In his address, he did not mention Koeman's name, so suggesting clearly that the Dutch coach is not part of the project.

In fact, Koeman was not even present when Laporta appeared in the locker room as he was fulfilling his media duties.
