Barcelona: Laporta’s advisor criticises Koeman: The coach can never say that the president can’t speak

Joan Laporta‘s advisor, Enric Masip, has hit out at Ronald Koeman for criticising the Barcelona president.

This comes after the Koeman was unhappy about the way in which information about his potential contract extension had been leaked to the press a couple of weeks ago.

Despite Barcelona‘s slow start to the campaign, Masip also stressed that Koeman is still the Barcelona head coach because the board have placed their confidence in him for the time being.

Koeman made some comments that for me, as a former sportsperson, the coach can never say that the president can’t speak, because the president is the president,” Masip told the ‘Onze’ programme on Esport3.

“That is my opinion. The next day we went down to the pitch and gave Ronald a hug.

“Right now, we are in a dynamic that is not the most positive. What we have to try to do is change the dynamic. It is a matter of trust and changing the dynamics. If the coach is in his place, it is considered that he is given the confidence to continue.”
