Koeman has been pushed ‘against the ropes’ after Barcelona were ’embarrassed’ once again in the Champions League.
Barca were among the verdicts splashed across the front pages of Spain’s newspapers on Thursday after Benfica rolled the Catalan side over to inflict their second straight 3-0 group-stage defeat this season.
Marca’s front page focused on a ‘total disaster’ for Barcelona in Lisbon that has placed Koeman’s future in charge ‘in more doubt than ever’.
Mundo Deportivo, a predominantly Barcelona-centric paper, likened Koeman to a boxer ‘against the ropes’ and with a nightmare four games to come he is under ‘serious pressure’ from president Joan Laporta.
