Barcelona will face Dynamo Kiev in their most important game of the season on Tuesday without their previous coach, who is still on his way.
On Friday, Barcelona president Joan Laporta said that he should have fired Ronald Koeman sooner, claiming that the club had been “dangerously drifting” and that the situation was “unsustainable.”
Xavi Hernandez is anticipated to succeed Koeman, and the return of one of the club’s greatest ever players, from Pep Guardiola’s historic team, will be a tremendous hit with both the players and the fans.
However, replacing Koeman just days before the club’s travel to Kiev appears to be a risk, not least since it implies the team had a lower chance of winning under him than they do now under interim coach Sergi Barjuan.
“In principle, Sergi will be on the bench in Kiev,” said Laporta.
