Koeman won’t be intimidated.
Coach Ronald Koeman is definitely going through a period of storm. Only 9th in La Liga after 10 days and already corrected twice 3-0 in the Champions League, his FC Barcelona has a failed start to the season and the media regularly speculate about his dismissal.
But a new step was taken on Sunday after the home defeat against Real Madrid (1-2) in the Clasico. When leaving Camp Nou, the Dutchman was indeed taken part by a crowd of supporters who accosted his car with hostile remarks.
a problme d’ducation for Koeman
Present at a press conference on Tuesday, the former Oranje selector punched the table in condemning these actions. It’s a social problem, I don’t think there is a solution to what happened when I left Camp Nou. These are people who have problems with education, they don’t know what the norms and values are, tackled the technician who however wanted to put the scale of this sling into perspective. The atmosphere on the pitch was quite the opposite, even 0-2. You don’t have to be very careful with these people. (…) I don’t like what I experienced on Sunday. It is better that they applaud. But again, I prefer people who know the club situation better than these guys.
Koeman will not resign
Beyond the press release published to support him, Koeman calls on the club to take its responsibilities. It seems to me that they did not do that with me, but the players and their families have been through this kind of situation before. The club know that this kind of thing cannot be repeated and must find another solution. It is not necessary to pay more attention to it, it is a social problem that occurs all over the world, not just here. , added the 58-year-old.
Despite this more muscular turn taken by the protest, the Catalan coach repeated that he has no intention of throwing in the towel. We are making things better. You didn’t just look at the result, although I understand the disappointment of losing to Madrid. (…) Faced with headwinds, it’s easy to give up. But I’m not someone like that, I face it, proclaimed the Dutchman, who is expecting a reaction from his group on Wednesday (7 p.m.) on the lawn of Rayo Vallecano, 7th in the standings.
