Barcelona president Laporta prepared to give Koeman time
Barcelona president Joan Laporta is ready to stick with coach Ronald Koeman - for now.
Nobody can deny that the relationship between the president and coach is extremely tense, and in the last few days things have only worsened with a series of words exchanged to one another via the press, reports Marca.
Laporta doesn't want to add any more fuel to the fire. At least not for now.
On Thursday he was due to attend a public event and decided not to go, knowing that he would be quizzed about Koeman in an attempt to stir the pot some more.
Instead, the president is waiting to see what happens now. Barcelona's next three matches are all seen as winnable, but Koeman's situation will depend on points and also the approach they take to each game, with Laporta wanting to see an attacking side.
