Messi rest, Koeman Future. Ronald Koeman’s future is uncertain. The Dutchman addressed it in his final pre-match press conference of the season. Which may also be his final pre-match media appearance at Barcelona.
The coach is upset about what he perceives as a lack of communication, and he spoke about it on Friday.
“I haven’t [felt the club’s confidence] through the last stretch of the season,” he remarked in the press conference.
Future of Koeman
“We haven’t discussed my future, and I understand there are concerns about the outcomes. I recognize that to win. Adjustments must occur.
“If they believe another coach or different players are required, that’s OK, but it must be conveyed.”
“In light of the last few months, I believe you should show greater respect for your coach and the players. I understand if recent newspaper reports have harmed gamers. They don’t deserve to treat this way.” There is a slew of things that need to do differently.”
When looking at the season as a whole, he said he would have thought this was a good year from the start.
“I believe we would have accepted this season in August if we had competed for the league title until the last two or three games.” We provided more hope because of how we performed and how we won the Copa del Rey.
“There certain games where we weren’t up to it, but overall, given the challenges we’ve had, I don’t believe it was too awful.” It wasn’t very excellent either.”
Some players will not be available for the season’s last encounter due to early vacations, as Koeman indicated.
“Three or four players have put forth the extraordinary effort,” he remarked.
“I’m not saying the others didn’t, but there are three players, Lionel Messi, Pedri, and Frenkie de Jong, who has carried a heavy load.”
Lionel Messi will miss the final game of Barcelona’s 2020/21 LaLiga Santander season against Eibar on Saturday.
Ronald Koeman granted the Argentine permission to miss the match, and he did not participate in training on Friday.
Because neither team has anything to play for, Koeman has rested a few of his players. Pedri has also granted permission to take his holiday early because he is the only player in the squad who has played in every league match this season.
Following this encounter, the team will take a break until mid-July, with those who are not participating in the European Championship or Copa America being the first to return for pre-season. Messi rest, Koeman Future
