Barcelona to sack Koeman and replace him with this coach.

Reports coming in this morning indicate that Barcelona are preparing to sack their Coach, Ronald Koeman after poor performances and his preferred style of play.

The coach who was appointed last season has not only been authoritative but has been noted to be implementing a style of play that is different from the basics of La Masia. Barcelona placed third last season and are currently eight on their table this season after 4 matches.

Most fans have related their poor performances to the exit of Lionel Messi. However, the problem is far more deeper than that. Ronald Koeman has been noted to be playing more defensive tactics than the offensive and possessive Barcelona style.

Due to this, the board of the club are currently in talks with former player, Xavi to come and take charge of the team should Koeman be sacked. Xavi is currently a coach for a Qatar club and led his team to win the Qatar premiership last season.

Other coaches on the list include; former Inter Milan coach, Antonio Conte and former Juventus Boss and midfielder, Pirlo.
