Ex-Barcelona coach reveals details of his resignation

Former head coach of Barcelona Ronald Koeman told how he learned about his dismissal from the club, according to the "Championship".

"How did Joan Laporta fire me? On the plane. I was sick of the fact that the players were behind us, and we were sitting separately. They heard what happened. Laporta always said that I was a Barcelona legend. You need to back up your words with actions" , - quotes Koeman AS.

Ronald took charge of Barcelona in August 2020 after the Catalans activated the option to buy his contract from the Dutch national team. In the 2020/2021 season, the blue garnets under the leadership of Koeman won the Spanish Cup and finished third in La Liga. Koeman was sacked as Barcelona manager after losing 1-0 to Rayo Vallecano on October 28, 2021.

Previously, Koeman spoke about the departure of Messi from Barcelona.

Recall that the Dutchman in the Catalan club was replaced by Xavi, under whose leadership the team has not lost in La Liga for 12 games.
