LIGA - Koeman speaks on Clasico pressure and job security
As Barcelona prepares to face Real Madrid in the first Clasico of the season, Ronald Koeman stated on Saturday that he could not be under any more pressure.
Earlier this month, Koeman appeared to be on the verge of losing his job after Barca had only won once in six games.
Joan Laporta, the club's president, attempted to put an end to the uncertainty by stating that Koeman "earned the benefit of the doubt" and would continue as coach.
"I don't think it's possible to be under more pressure," said Koeman at the eve of match press conference.
"As Barcelona coach you have to take it, no problem. I know the importance of a Clasico."
When asked if he still felt the club's support, Koeman smiled and said: "I have to answer every game if that's the case. I think I am the coach of Barcelona now, tomorrow let's see. I feel supported by the club but I know everything depends on results."
