UPDATE: Barcelona Sack Koeman After Shock Defeat To Rayo Vallecano

Barcelona have sacked head coach Ronald Koeman after just 14 months in charge at the Nou Camp following Wednesday’s shock 1-0 loss to Rayo Vallecano.

“Barcelona has dismissed Ronald Koeman as coach of the first team tonight. The president of the club, Joan Laporta, has informed him after the defeat against Rayo Vallecano. Ronald Koeman will say goodbye to the squad this Thursday at the Ciudad Deportiva.

    Man United take note. Ole will create more damage that no big coach will be interested again to Manage Man United.

    Men, they sacked this guy so quickly.
    Na wa ooo.

    • In truth he did not have much to work with… Barcelona are in a mire of their own making. It will be interesting to see who can come in to turn the situation around.

    This guy to me will struggle to raise a great side no matter the players available, simply because of his understanding of how football should be played. As a player, he played more of long balls to forward players and never really gritty tactical build up play from midfield like Pep. Such players later becoming coaches, tend to struggle to raise great teams because their style of play always defeats the great need of patient build up play founded on first taking complete control of the midfield before launching forward to attack. Their impatience in launching attack always leaves them vulnerable in the midfield/attack and smart managers forever happy to feast.

  • @Glory I disagree with you. That Barca team is ordinary don’t think Guardiola will even accept to take over the team with current squad. Imagine playing with mostly kids from reserved team and you expect him to perform miracle. Koeman is not a bad coach checks his stats with Neitherland infact he brought there football back to life before taking over Barca. Things didn’t just work out there.

      @ Tayo, I will come apologize to you, after the right manager takes over this Barca team. The Dutch team he managed was only a soup needed to be taking out of the fire after been prepared by another cook.
