Ronald Koeman’s stint at Barca hasn’t been uneventful. It’s fair to say his time at the club has been marred with ups and downs like most Barcelona managers. However, he’s dealing with a variety of issues that probably make it tough to get in the flow of things.

Those ups and downs haven’t been helped by inconsistent performances from the club depending on what day it is. They look great one day and the next get thrashed in the league or by Juventus.

That’s led to a report from Diario Sport that the dressing room has begun to question his tactics. The report specifically outlines that the players enjoy his personality and presence in the squad, but the footballing philosophy that Koeman has brought to the table hasn’t been as well received.

The change up from a 4-3-3 to the 4-2-3-1 has left some questioning Ronald’s strategy with the squad he currently has. Time will tell if this keeps bubbling up, but something tells me a formation change wouldn’t be the magic formula that “fixes” Barca.
