The Dutch manager has come under scrutiny following Barcelona poor run of form and news from Spain says the club is considering his future at the club. According to reports Barcelona president, Juan Laporta and some members of the club board have lost trust in the Dutch man and want to get rid of him immediately, however some section of the club's board including Barcelona director of football, Mateu Alemany want the club to give Ronald Koeman few weeks to turn things around.

Koeman's compatriot, Jordi Cruyff , who is currently the club's assistant director of football is one of the candidates lined to replace him after his sack but he's reportedly unwilling to take the job by virtue of his friendship with Koeman.

The 58 year old manager was appointed last year to replace Quique Setien and under his tutelage, Barcelona have played 58 matches of which 37 have resulted in wins, losing 12 of them and drawing 9. Barcelona fans have also been calling for his sack for sometime, owing to a number of avoidable losses the club have recorded in some crucial games under his managership.

However his contract at the club currently runs till June 2022 and if fired, Barcelona would have to pay him €12m.
