Asked about the departure of Ronald Koeman, Lionel Messi believes that the coaching position is ungrateful and Barça has been a little unfair with the Dutch technician.
In recent seasons, FC Barcelona is going through a complicated period. The coaches follow one another, but the results are slow to come back. Last coach to date to have paid the price: Ronald Koeman . The Dutch technician was dismissed from his post after a very complicated start to the season. But Lionel Messi believes that there has been some form of injustice with his former coach, replaced by Xavi.
“It's always easier to blame the coach ”
“ People are always unfair to coaches. They were unfair with Koeman, with Valverde … When there are bad results, the easiest thing to do is point the finger at the coach, change him and not the players. Koeman came at a very difficult time for the club, when important players left, but he was able to bring in a lot of young players. Like I said, it's always easier to blame the coach. And they also know it because it's their profession, ”he says in an interview with MARCA.
