Barça announced at the edge of 0:15 hours the impeachment of Ronald Koeman. Sergi Barjuan, subsidiary coach, He could be the interim coach in the games against Alavés, Dinamo Kiev and Celta; and Xavi Hernández, culé legend, he is the chosen one to be the next Barça coach. Koeman ratified by Joan Laporta just before the Wanda Metropolitano game, the president swerved and the Wembley hero ceased to be a Barça coach fourteen months after his arrival on the bench. Koeman leaves with Barça in a delicate position in LaLiga, and with a Cup title in his pockets. His replacement will be Xavi Hernández, Barça legend, four-time European champion as a player, who had started his career as a coach at Al Sadd in Qatar. Xavi had already been close to Barça in the 2019-20 season, when Eric Abidal, then technical secretary, traveled to Doha with Òscar Grau, the club’s CEO, to try to close his signing. But Xavi gave Bartomeu pumpkins. Then the tables turned. Xavi approached the candidacy of Víctor Font, which finally did not win the elections. By then, his options to coach Barça in the short term seemed short. But the parties were condemned to understand each other. Xavi is crazy about training Barça and for Laporta he was an irreplaceable wild card. As the newspaper announced last night Ara, the signing is closed, although Xavi could play with the times and wait for the November break to take over the team.
The end of Ronald Koeman had a sad point. Laporta, hesitant, leaked after the game against Benfica that Koeman would be charged, but waited for the break. He knew how to mark the times. He let it burn in the game of the Wanda and he pulled the strings in case, as he feared, the results did not respond to him. After losing the Classic and against Rayo, he has executed it. Everything happened very quickly after the Vallecas game. Koeman, who already appeared somewhat saddened at the previous press conference of the Classic, did not seem strong enough for more.
