Koeman losing support inside Barcelona boardroom

Barcelona directors have lost patience with coach Ronald Koeman.

Sport says a significant number of directors at the club, feel Koeman is responsible for their sudden form slide.

While they appreciate the success in the Copa del Rey and the work done to get back into the title race in the first place with a brilliant start to 2021, the drop in performances at the key moment has led to doubt about the coach. That's without even speaking about the fact Barça have taken just one point from 12 against their direct rivals Atletico (a draw and a loss) and Real Madrid (two losses).

Despite the growing unease surrounding Koeman, president Joan Laporta doesn't want to rush into a decision.

He has repeated since taking charge that he backed Koeman's work. At least in public, although there have been questions in private.

But now he wants to wait until the end of the season to decide on the future of the coach, who has one more year to run on his contract.
