Laportas text and explanation: I decided Koeman stays

Ronald Koeman was told on Saturday that he can continue as head coach at FC Barcelona. President Joan Laporta said that, after confirming earlier that there would be no resignation.
It seemed Koeman would get his resignation, but Laporta surprised Saturday with the message that he may stay on anyway. The result of the match against Atlรฉtico Madrid would not be decisive for Koemans future.
โ€œI
ve talked to Koeman in the last few hours and decided hell stay,โ€ Laporta says in Spanish media. โ€œRonald loves Barcelona and his team. Im sure hell do his best to change the situation. Our band is good and I ask supporters to support Koeman. Hes a club icon.โ€
Koeman, who has been suspended, plays with Barcelona against Atlรฉtico. Hes got another contract until the end of this season.
