Koeman takes aim at Barcelona president Laporta: I was undermined

Ronald Koeman has taken aim at Barcelona president Joan Laporta.

Koeman was sacked by Laporta earlier this season and says he felt undermined in public by the president from the start of the campaign.

He said, "I would like to say one thing. I have felt that at other clubs and in two years as the Netherlands coach, we knew exactly the risk of being a manager if things don't work out the way the club thinks.

"But I, who don't like it on my personal subject, that on the part of the president leaves doubts outwardly, off the record he says: 'I don't know if he continues'.

"That is something a coach doesn't need. Even if you get kicked out, inwardly you can argue. But outwardly you have to support him. I do not want to say more on this subject."
