Carles Tusquets Says No Sack for Koeman Yet

Carles Tusquets Backs Ronald Koeman

Barcelona interim president Carles Tusquets says he will not consider sacking Ronald Koeman despite the team’s inconsistency and continues dropping of points in the 2020/21 Spanish La Liga season.

Barcelona was held to a 2-2 draw by Valencia on Saturday night although Lionel Messi matches the record of soccer legend John Pele with his goal in the 2-2 draw.

The result further put Koeman under pressure, but Carles Tusquets has come to publicly back the Dutchman. He spoke to Mundo Deportivo, saying: “I will not fire anyone, at all. [Ronald] Koeman is doing well, he has great criteria, he bets on the youth system and young players.

Carles Tusquets also said: “He absolutely has my support and he will always have it. I’ve eaten with him recently and I found him to be optimistic. When the stadium is reopened it will not be very difficult to recover this club, not in the economic sphere and I hope not in the sporting sphere.”

“Barcelona is betting on a new generation of players, which suits the club right now as we are in the midst of a change of cycle.” Barcelona will face struggling Real Valladolid in their next game which is a midweek game before they host Eibar in La Liga after Christmas.
