Ronald Koeman is an interesting case study. He’s going to be questioned after each poor performance and praised after each decent one. Much alike many Barca managers, but even more so given the strange position Barcelona find themselves in this year.

Now that the much maligned man who hired him is gone, his job will be even more in question. He was asked about that after Barcelona’s win over Juventus.

“I don’t think [Bartomeu’s resignation] affects my position and if there is something that changes my situation they have to speak to me. I work as the head coach of Barcelona. We want to get the best results and perform well and improve our game individually and as a team.That is our job, where we are going to put our energy. “

“The things outside of sport are not in our hands. We will see what happens. I’m not liberated far from it. Everyone has their own thoughts about what happened [with Bartomeu]. What the team has shown today is that it has not affected us. If something affected us, we would now have played a game like we did today.”

Can’t imagine the scenes if Barca had lost. His job isn’t in jeopardy, even if Barca lose a few in a row.
