Football – Mercato – Barcelona
Jostled on his exit from Camp Nou on Sunday evening after FC Barcelona’s defeat against the eternal rival of Real Madrid (2-1), Ronald Koeman had to witness helplessly the admonitions of Blaugrana supporters while he was immobilized in his car with his wife among others. An episode which marked the Dutchman, but which did not weaken his determination to continue at FC Barcelona so far.
the FC Barcelona was once again lost this season in a crucial match on Sunday night when the Real Madrid at Camp Nou (2-1). A feeling of déjà vu after the setbacks conceded to theAtletico of Madrid at the beginning of October (2-0) which followed the defeats against Benfica Lisbon and Bayern Munich in the Champions League (3-0) earlier in the season. Results which clearly do not play in favor of Ronald Koeman either with the management while his contract will expire at the end of the current financial year and the supporters who openly showed their dissatisfaction on Sunday evening at the end of Ronald Koeman from Camp Nou in his car. The images have gone around the web in which we see FC Barcelona socios surrounding the vehicle of the coach of the club culé, not being able to move forward for long seconds. An incident representative of the deleterious climate currently FC Barcelona and around the Dutch coach. So inevitably, during his visit to a press conference on Tuesday, Koeman was asked about this special episode of which he was the protagonist, unwittingly.
“It’s more of a social problem, it’s not a question of dead ends”
Invited to express themselves on this friction with the supporters during the press point in question and in comments reported by Mundo Deportivo, Ronald Koeman highlighted a crying lack of education on the part of supporters of the FC Barcelona concerned by this unfortunate episode. “The incidents with the supporters? Solution I don’t think there is. For me, it’s more of a social problem, it’s not a question of dead ends. It’s more about education, they don’t have values. The atmosphere on the pitch was extraordinary, even at 0-2. We don’t have to be too careful, and it looks like it was only with me, but it was with a lot of players, with their families. Maybe it was more exaggerated with me, but even Carles Puyol must have suffered. The club know that this cannot be repeated and must look for another formula. We should not pay more attention to it, it is a social problem that arises all over the world, not just here ”.

There was an Arsenal guy in front, there was a point where I said I was going to go out, but in the end I decided not to (laughs). When you go out there are a lot of cameras, a lot of phones, a lot of Tik-tok for their fans … it’s a social problem that we have and you better put your energy into other things ”.

However, Ronald koeman did not for a second consider the option of resigning his post as coach of the FC Barcelona during the said confrontation with the supporters of the Barça. “If I considered resigning after the incidents?” It’s true that I don’t like it, I prefer applause to that, but again, people who know the situation of the club and the team, without looking at a disappointing result against Madrid, know that he there are some positive things. I’m a big boy in this business, I want to enjoy the atmosphere that was on the pitch the other day. I accept the results. I want to take advantage, if it’s eight years, eight years, if it’s a year, a year, and if it’s three months, three months ”. It remains to be seen whether such overflows will take place by the end of the coaching mandate of Ronald Koeman to FC Barcelona, namely next June …
