This information is following an extremely premature loss to Granada which noticed the title race blown huge open. Koeman himself obtained a red-card throughout the sport and faces a 2 match suspension, which signifies that he received’t be on the touchline for the match towards Valencia and the essential fixture towards Atlético Madrid.
Laporta hasn’t essentially hidden the truth that the Dutchman was not his first selection to guide his new sports activities challenge after he was elected. The president expressed his admiration of then Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann, who has since turn out to be unavailable after coming to an settlement to educate Bayern Munich subsequent season.
If the report is to be believed, if Koeman fails to win the La Liga title this season, Xavi Hernández would be the coach for subsequent season, as reported by David Bernabeu Reverter. Certainly, management on the Catalan membership have made contact with him and requested him to not renew his managerial contract with Al-Sadd.

Though the Dutchman has did not carry out in massive video games within the Champions League and La Liga and has did not climb to the highest of the La Liga desk with the defeat to Granada on Thursday probably costing the Catalans the title, there have been constructive indicators in his tenure.
Except for the Copa del Rey victory towards Athletic Bilbao, Koeman’s religion in kids has clearly paid off, with the likes of Pedri, Mingueza, Araújo, and extra lately Ilaix Moriba exhibiting unimaginable promise at Barcelona.
Each success has been at a time of disaster, with Barcelona going through their worst monetary scenario within the membership’s historical past alongside going by way of an influence vacuum for a lot of the season with the resignation of former president Bartomeu in October 2020.
Xavi has loved large success at Al-Sadd, main them to a home treble within the 2019/20 season and enjoying excessive depth attacking soccer, a lot to the necessities of a crew like FC Barcelona.
That is, in fact, not the primary time he has been linked to a training job on the Camp Nou, with studies suggesting that the membership legend turned down a proposal below Bartomeu’s presidency.
