Thu 23 September 2021 | 16:40

The Dutch coach has not achieved good results so far this season and the pressure on him has reached the maximum possible.

Hours before the game against Cadiz, the Barcelona CEO assured that he would not change his team's technical staff, even if they lose tonight.


will face Cadiz tonight and they must score three points in this match anyway, given to Real Madrid and Atletico's win in their recent game.

Despite the tensions between the management and the Barcelona coach, the victory in tonight's match can calm the situation at the Camp Nou.

instead of answering reporters in yesterday's press conference ,Ronald Koeman simply read a statement and claimed that his team should not be expected to win any title. Barca president Joan Laporta, however, believes the current team has the potential to achieve the desired results.

He said:

"Koeman's future doesn't depend on the result tonight. We are with the coach. He's Barca's first team coach and what we want is for things to go well.

"All coaches, not just Koeman, depend on results, and in Barca's case on their style of play. Koeman is our coach and we're with him today.

"We see that the team isn't working as we all were hoping,"

Laporta said.

"In that sense, we'll act thinking always of Barcelona... If decisions have to be taken, we'll take them.

"What I don't like is a conformist attitude, a certain defeatism, that can't be allowed at Barcelona. We have the team we have, but we can aspire to win LaLiga and the players say to me that we have to be optimistic.

"We have to work, we have to fight every day, because I believe you achieve success with daily work. Less talking and more doing, more working."
