The future of Barcelona coach, Ronald Koeman, does not depend on the next results said the club’s president, Joan Laporta, but warned that “if decisions have to be made, we will make them.”

Koeman has come under intense pressure since a 3-0 Champions League loss to Bayern Munich two weeks ago, although he also gained ground with a win last Sunday.

“Koeman’s future does not depend on tonight’s result,” Laporta told El Chiringuito on Thursday, speaking in front of the team’s hotel in Cádiz. «We are with the technician. He is the coach of the Barça first team, and what we want is for things to go well.

“All the coaches, not just Koeman, depend on the results and, in the case of Barça, on their style of play. Koeman is our coach and today we are with him.

Koeman declined to respond to questions from the media at his preliminary press conference on Wednesday, choosing instead to read a prepared statement calling for “time” and “unconditional support” for the team “in words and actions.”

Laporta considered firing Koeman last summer, probing potential candidates, including now Germany coach Hansi Flick and Belgian Roberto Martinez.

The couple’s relationship has suffered the most since then, with the board’s growing frustration over the team’s results, performances, and Koeman’s candid interviews in the Dutch media.

“We see that the team is not working as we all expected,” Laporta said Thursday. “In that sense, we will always act with Barcelona in mind … If we have to make decisions, we will make them.”

We have the team that we have, but we can aspire to win LaLiga and the players tell me that we have to be optimistic, we have to work, we have to fight every day, because I believe that with daily work, success is achieved ». Talk less and do more, work more, ”Koeman said.

Barça have won three and drawn two of their five LaLiga games so far this season, but they face a tough list of matches over the next month, with successive matches against Atlético de Madrid, Valencia and Real Madrid in October.
