Luis Suárez and Arturo Vidal have been the first in knowing that they do not explain for Ronald Koeman. The Dutch has called to other two 'heavy weights' with the same end
Ronald Koeman follows showing that it does not lose the time regarding the planning of the staff. In less than a month, the FC Barcelona will begin the season of official form with his career in LaLiga Santander and is thus that the changes in the team have to begin to do from already. The Dutch, that knows that it needs a turn of nut, already has spoken with several players to communicate them his future.
In the capitulate of arrivals, Ronald Koeman already has spoken this same Monday with Philippe Coutinho to say him that goes in in his plans. Something very distinct to the cases of Luis Suárez and Arturo Vidal, that already know by mouth of the own Dutch technician that do not explain for him and that from already need to begin to look for team to follow with his respective careers.
According to several media of Catalan field, the Uruguayan forward and the Chilean midfield player have not been the only that today same have received the call of Ronald Koeman informing them about his no continuity. Ivan Rakitic and Samuel Umtiti also would have kept a telephone talk with the Dutch trainer in which both would have known at first hand that they will not play more like culés.
In this way, it follows the selection of Ronald Koeman, that promised an important cleaning in the changing room and that is carrying it out communicating, by the moment, to four important players that does not want them in his staff. Ivan Rakitic and Samuel Umtiti, that have not had a too positive performance in the last months, add to Arturo Vidal and to Luis Suárez.
The sunset of Ivan Rakitic and Samuel Umtiti in the FC Barcelona
From 2014, Ivan Rakitic was a very important player for the FC Barcelona, consecrating in a centre of the mythical field beside Andrés Iniesta and Sergio Busquets. Nevertheless, the years have done mella in him and his performance has descended considerably in these two last campaigns. With agreement in force until 2021 and 32 years, expects that, after a big stage like Barcelona, the Croat negotiate his goodbye with possible destination to Seville.
The case of Samuel Umtiti is much more disappointing. Since in 2018 it decided to do case omiso to the medical recommendations and not to operate the knee, seems more an ex player that a professional footballer. It has lost a lot of parties by fault of his physical problems and, when it has played, has given a very inferior level to the that had when it arrived. With 26 years and agreement in force until 2022, will leave by the rear door having showed his little professionalism in spite of that in his starts aimed to turn into one of the best in his place. A very distinct case to the ones of Ivan Rakitic or Luis Suárez.
