After the shaky start to the new season, some Barcelona fans want the club to sack Ronald Koeman.
The Dutchman has been in charge of Barcelona for over a year now and won the Copa Del Rey.
Although Barcelona has won one game and drawn one, the team looks like it cannot hold a lead.
The first game was against Real Soceidad at home which the team won 4-2 and it was impressive.
Striker, Martin Braithwaite was impressive in the match scoring two goals in the process.
Although Koeman has helped settle things since the departure of Messi to PSG this summer, the team still lacks leadership.
In the game against Athletic Bilbao, it was very evident the team lacks depth.
Koeman is a stubborn manager and doesn’t like being told what to do or being criticised.
Some fans online during the game complained on the approach to the game and his tactics.
Many thought he should have used Griezmann as a striker instead of Depay and also start Araujo.
Athletic Bilbao took the lead in the 50th minute and it looked like Barca were heading for a defeat.
It took the brilliance of Depay in the 75th minute for Barcelona to draw level.
Many might wonder why there is a call to sack Ronaldo Koeman, but it is glaring for all to see.
Koeman continues to leave out Puig for whatever reason and even started Pedri ahead of him.
Remember Pedri played in the Euros and also the Olympics yet he is starting ahead of Puig.
Koeman might have a lot of experience but he is just a bad man manager and that would count against him.
The perfect synchronisation of the players will keep everyone happy and their legs fresh.
Without Messi in the squad, it will be a lot difficult for the team to have that fear factor.
After the game, Koeman told the press that “I don’t like to always talk about the same thing, but we’re talking about the best in the world. Our opponents had more fear when Messi was here”.
Some fans don’t see the team improving which is why they are calling on the club to sack Ronald Koeman.
