Ronald Koeman Loses A Crucial Match Again

No one can make a convincing argument that Koeman is still the Barcelona manager due to his tactical prowess. If it is about his caring decision to manage the club at its low, unattractive form, then the Catalans have rewarded him enough. The club mustn’t sink any deeper before Management faces reality.

Starting Sergino Dest as an attacker in an El-Classico match proves the Barcelona manager is very clueless and tactless. It’s true we don’t change a winning team. However, great coaches are able to differentiate a one-off experimental hit from appropriate tactical tweaks. Every fan saw the impact Coutinho brought to the game.

One mistake was playing Mingueza at the Right-Back. Because Koeman assigned Dest to the Right-Wing, he had no choice than to use the third choice, especially when Sergi Roberto wasn’t well to start. The evidence was so clear Koeman, himself, had to substitute Oscar at half time.

In such crucial games, there are no room for petty, basic errors. At least, good managers know that. The earlier Barca sacks him, the better it would be for the club. Each time he is at post, it's just an extended favour.
