INSIDER: Koeman doesn't understand Barcelona fans' disappointment

Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman is calm about his team's progress this season.

Koeman is said to be under pressure after defeat in midweek to Champions League opponents Juventus.

However, with a place in the final 16 now locked in, Koeman isn't panicking.

That's according to journalist Lluís Canut, who is close to the Barca coach. He said on El Partidazo de COPE: "He is optimistic, he does not lose his tone or hope.

"Ronald does not understand the disappointment of the fans because the team is in the second round.

"He is not angry with the players."

Canut also revealed Koeman was left disappointed when Barca failed to sign Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku before the start of the season.
