After the defeat of the Barça in front of the Juventus, a lot of doubts assault to the barcelonismo, like the continuity of Koeman, that has not attained to give with the key to recover to the team

Calendar of FC Barcelona

In summer, in the middle of the worst moment of the FC Barcelona, after losing the League and remain humiliated in the Champions League in front of the Bayern Munich, Ronald Koeman arrived to the bench of the Camp Nou with the firm intention to revolutionise to the team. Almost five months afterwards, are more the doubts that surround to the 'Project Koeman' that the results that back him. The Barça, to day of today, lives a so critical situation like which lived to final of the past season, under the orders of Quique Setién and seems, for the moment, that there will be a solution in the short term.

The exert of the Barça in front of the Juventus has left to the discovered all fail them of a team that has maquillado all his problems with goleadas of time in month. In front of the Villarreal, Ferencváros, Dynamo of Kiev or Osasuna, the ones of Koeman obtained results been bulky and moved away the doubts that surrounded him but, in front of big or able teams to pose firmly in the defence, the reality has been another. The only party that the culés have won to a rival of maximum level in this campaign was in Turín, does more than a month, in front of a Juventus that also dragged a lot of problems. It has confronted to the Real Madrid, Athletic of Madrid, Cádiz or the Vechia Signora and the feelings have been very negative.

Further of the results, that already are very worrisome, the most alarming in the defeats of the Barcelona is that always they repeat the same errors, in the defence especially, the fault of puntería or the non-existent capacity of reaction of the team when it is by behind in the marker. And in this has a lot of responsibility the trainer. If to this add him that it still has not achieved the best version of Leo Messi (and that perhaps are seeing the worst of the Argentinian) and that in the attack the 'stars' do not finish to combine, the history for Koeman finishes being disastrous.

The Dutch seems firm with his approach of 4-2-3-1 that in the selection of Holland gave him very good results but that in the Camp Nou is punishing him. The players have not finished to adapt to the system and he seems that it does not have intention to change of idea, although the club needs it. It is true that the injuries have punished him and that has not had the signings that has asked, but to day of today is inacceptable that repeat the same errors of three months ago and that do not achieve to solve them.

Also it is true that the Barça had to live a stage of transition after the disaster of Lisbon, but is not just for the fanatical that have to acostumbarse to live a nightmare week after week with the performance of his team. And although the players are responsible, as it has said Antoine Griezmann, can not do it alone by work of magic. Without captain there is not sailor, and in the Barcelona is what seems that it is sucediendo.

The 'project Koeman' continues

In spite of the bad results and the exert irregular of the team, Ronald Koeman has his place ensured in the bench of the FC Barcelona until, at least, after the presidential elections of the blaugrana, the next 24 January 2021. In paper, the Managing Commission of the club, chaired by Carles Tusquets, does not have the authority for destituir a technician and like this will finish being. Besides, Tusquets already has recognised in front of the cameras of 'The Chiringuito' that the Dutch will continue in his charge.

After the party, the cameras of the television program 'hunted' to the president of the Managing Board and asked after the continuity of the Dutch, to what answered that "Koeman follows". Tusquets Avoided controversial statements, but denied the possibilities that the technician was destituido by the results in front of the Cádiz and the Juventus.
