Koeman agent slams Barcelona president Laporta: The hypocrisy of top-level sport

The agent of Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman has been critical of president Joan Laporta on Dutch TV.

In a documentary dubbed, 'Forca Koeman', Rob Jansen hits out at Laporta after he threatened to remove the Dutchman following his presidential win.

Interviewed in May, Jansen declared: "Laporta says it takes him two or three weeks to find the new candidate (to replace Koeman). And if he does not find him, Ronald Koeman is authorised to stay.

"It's a crazy decision based on nothing, based only on his feelings. It's crazy.

"I no longer speak to Laporta. But luckily the people around him were able to let Koeman stay. Eventually, Laporta himself told the media 'we will continue, we are friends etc'. It is the hypocrisy of top-level sport."
