LIGA - Barcelona FC: Koeman expelled in October?
The end of Ronald Koeman at FC Barcelona is apparently a done deal. This is reported by 'Spox.com' and 'Goal.com'. The management of the Catalans has already decided that the 58-year-old is out, only the time is still open.
At the moment, "everything looks like" that Koeman will have to vacate his head coach position in the upcoming international break in mid-October. Before that, a change of coach is hardly feasible due to the tightly knit game plan.
At Barca, the former bond coach is in the line of fire due to his staid style of play. Koeman's point average of 2.05 is also the lowest since interim coach Jordi Roura in the spring of 2013. A premature separation would cost the financially troubled club dearly. Around 14 million euros would be due if the contract, which is valid until 2022, is terminated. Among the numerous successor candidates is the name of ex-national coach Joachim Low.
