58-year-old Dutch specialist Ronald Koeman, head of Barcelona, has been fired from his post. This was reported by the press service of the blue garnet on the official website.
Earlier, the Spanish media reported that after the defeat to Rayo Vallecano in the away game of the 11th round of the Spanish Championship, the Barcelona board held an emergency meeting, headed by Joan Laporte, where Cuman's resignation was approved.
Recall that Koeman took over the leadership of Barcelona in August 2020 after the blue garnet activated the option to buy out his contract from the Netherlands national team. In the 2020/2021 season, the Catalan club under his leadership won the Spanish Cup, finishing 3rd in the Spanish Championship.
In the current championship of Spain, Barcelona scored 15 points and is ranked 9th in the standings. In the UEFA Champions League, the Catalan club is in third place in Group E after three rounds - the blue garnet lost to Benfica (0: 3) and Bayern (0: 3), beating Dynamo Kiev (1: 0).
