Here is a documentary which should cause collateral damage to FC Barcelona. Dutch television has indeed broadcast a documentary entitled “Força Koeman” revealing in particular the exchanges at the beginning of the summer between the agent of Ronald Koeman, Rob Jansen and the president of the Blaugranas Joan Laporta. We thus discover the at least nebulous discourse of Laporta on the future of his technician. Third in the last Liga exercise, Barça in full reconstruction also gleaned the Copa del Rey in parallel.
A visibly insufficient record for the strong man of the Catalan club who is moved by Koeman during a discussion with broken sticks. Exchanges revealed by the former coach of the Netherlands in this documentary. “We always got along well. And then the president said to me: I still have doubts. We need more time and we will look for other options for the coaching position. We can’t say anything else, “ thus entrusted Koeman by revealing the contents of the conversation with its president. Irritated, the former manager of Everton is rightly offended by the multiple presidential procrastination towards him.

It’s the hypocrisy of top-level sport, ” thus let go of Jansen, visibly upset at the turn of events.
Waiting for several days before the final decision of its president, Ronald Koeman tried somehow to stay the course while waiting for the ax to fall. “The president is the president. He is there to make decisions. I told him to tell me if I wasn’t good enough in his eyes to coach the team, that we end this story. I told him not to leave me in this uncertainty by telling me that I had to wait until another solution was found, “ thus entrusted the coach of Barça. A few days later, without any viable option, Joan Laporta announced that Ronald Koeman would honor his last year of contract on the bench of FC Barcelona. A sad soap opera that undeniably left traces between the two men …
