Joan Laporta, president of the FC Barcelona, has surprised to all when it confirmed the continuity of Ronald Koeman in the bench of the first team
Anybody comprises the last changes of course of Joan Laporta in his decision on who will occupy the bench of the FC Barcelona when Ronald Koeman was destituido. When the European football took for granted that the Dutch technician had the hours explained in the bench of the first team, the president of the club baffled to all with his statements before the party.
Laporta Affirmed in front of the microphones of the press that Koeman would keep on being trainer of the Barcelona without mattering the final result in front of the Athletic of Madrid, to the time that ensured that the still trainer culé deserved something of credit. Afterwards of the parade of names of possible substitutes, costs to understand this sudden change of course that could hide other reasons.
The refusal of the candidates
One of the reasons by what Laporta decided to continue with Koeman in the bench is, perhaps that the president of the Barcelona club still has not found a candidate that wish recalar in the Camp Nou. Marcelo Gallardo was the last in refusing to Laporta: "never it went through me the head and will not happen me further of some rumours and what say abandon this club", aseveró the Argentinian technician on his possible exit of River Plate.
Distrust on Xavi
Laporta Shows skeptical on the option of Xavi Hernández. His "fault of experience" is a ballast that generates doubts in the managerial board. Although this fault of shooting did not seem to affect in 2008 when it decided to tend him the hand to Guardiola to pipe the course of the team. Like this then , the distrust of Laporta could aim to another direction: The relation between his rival of campaign for the presidential elections, Víctor Font.
The economy aims to be one of the reasons. The clear of Koeman would rise to some 12 million euros, a figure that would result impossible to assume for an entity that finish to present 481 million losses and that has a debt of 1.350 million euros. If the Barcelona wanted to sack to Koeman and fichar another trainer, only would have of 4% of his limit salarial to be able to do it. That is to say, the Barcelona club could spend 3.8 million euros to be able to hire a new trainer.
