Junior Firpo stunned by snub from Barcelona coach Koeman

Junior Firpo was stunned by his snub by Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman this week.

The fullback had hoped of seeing action against Champions League opponents Dynamo Kyiv.

Firpo was expecting Koeman to rest Jordi Alba and give him a chance. But the Dutchman again went with the veteran left-back.

Sport says Firpo was left stunned and disheartened. While Koeman has rotated his squad since the season kicked off, Firpo has been left on the sidelines.

A move away in January is now expected for Firpo, who has seen just 31 minutes under Koeman this term.
