Koeman: My Barcelona problems began with Laporta

Former Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman admits he's felt 'liberated' after being sacked last season.

Koeman appeared on TV3 and spoke about his exit from Barcelona and his relationship with Joan Laporta.

“The dressing room was never against me," he said. “For me the problem started when the president changed.

“As a president you can always have your doubts about the coach, but not publicly. That was a big mistake from Laporta."

He also said he felt free after leaving.

“It's been a bit of a liberation to be free of being coach of Barça," said Koeman.
