Barca to sack Koeman after the season ends!

Barca to sack Koeman after the season ends!

Even though he won a trophy with Barcelona, which is a miracle in itself considering how bad the side was in the fall, the club brass has decided that Ronald Koeman is unfit for the position and will get sacked! Only the last match day remains between the announcement, reputable sources in Spain claim.

Koeman won the Copa del Rey with Barca this season and more importantly, made the team play in signature Barcelona fashion. The Champions League second-leg against Paris Saint-Germain was a shockingly good showing by the Catalans. The side scored by far the most goals in the league too - 84. Impressive especially considering the uncertainty surrounding the club the whole season, from the previous president resigning, Leo Messi dissatisfied and possibly leaving, to the elections, and the European Super League fiasco.

Not to mention that the team at his disposal is considered Barca-quality by few. The side will see many players leave the dressing room in the summer.

Yet the results in the most important part of the season can't be overlooked. In the last five games, Barca won just once, and barely against Valencia 3:2. The team also suffered two defeats, the last one against Celta cementing them outside the top two. The first time for the club since the 2007/2008 season!

Now, Barca will end Koeman's contract a year before it ends and only a year after he left the Dutch national team to lead the side he played for in the past.

As his replacement, so far the journalists mention Xavi, who is a manager in the Middle East for Al Sadd. The other option is the Barca B manager, Garcia Pimienta, who has a win ratio of 45% in 102 games for the team.
