Spanish media fire Koeman: ‘Situation untenable, Barça in ruins’

Ronald Koeman is under fire again after FC Barcelona‘s painful defeat at Rayo Vallecano. The Spanish sports newspapers see that the position of the Dutch trainer becomes so slowly untenable.
Koeman, à la Van Gaal: everything negative, nothing positive‘, headlines Marca, referring to a press conference in which Louis van Gaal lashes to the ‘negative‘ media in his Barça era. ‘It is surprising to see Barça ranked ninth after eleven games. Barcelona lost its second consecutive game and it puts Koeman back in the spotlight. There are more and more parallels with his compatriot Louis van Gaal.
Will he make Christmas on the bank of Barcelona? , Marca wonders. It’
s been a million demand since the start of the season. He‘s under pressure inside and outside the club. Barça’s results are almost as bad as the game on display. This is what it is, was Koeman‘s statement, but that is no longer just.

Sport saw a horrible duel of the men of Koeman. It was already the fourth defeat in the last six games, which left Catalans further behind in the Spanish title battle. And Barça shows no signs that it can reverse the situation. Barcelona is a bit like a tragicomedy. If it doesn’t run, then the team isn‘t able to turn it around. It may be a long season.
After the first defeat to Rayo Vallecano since 2002, the Catalan sports newspaper has little attention to Koeman’
s position, but it draws a clear conclusion in general: ‘The situation is untenable. It’s unbearable to think it stays that way for the rest of the season.
Mundo Deportivo joins that. ‘
The situation is becoming more dangerous both for the team and Ronald Koeman himself, ‘the verdict reads. Barcelona doesn’t know how to win anymore. After El Clásico, Rayo Vallecano seemed to be able to serve as a lifeline in the middle of the ocean, but before that the game was too brittle and inconsistent. Individual errors even endanger the qualification for European football, the newspaper refers to the misses of Sergiño Dest and Memphis Depay.
