OPINION: Before the big signings, a new coach

Since the arrival of Joan Laporta to the presidency of FC Barcelona There has been talk of the arrival of great players to strengthen a squad that has gradually lost a lot of talent in recent years (Neymar, Luis Suárez, Lionel Messi, Antoine Griezman …), but the main problem for the Blaugrana team is not quality of his pieces or the absence of a world superstar.

Barcelona has a staff with talent beyond the great casualties. He does not have a team to fight to win the UEFA Champions League, but he does have pieces to play better than he is doing at the beginning of the season. Names like Frenkie de Jong, Sergio Busquets, Pedri, Marc André Ter Stegen, Gerard Piqué, Ronald Araujo, Eric García, Memphis Depay, Ansu Fati… They are all players who offer great returns if a suitable game system is made. And the main problem is that Ronald Koeman still hasn’t managed to do it.

Koeman, is not a coach for Barcelona

The Dutch coach is one of the culprits of the club’s bad sporting moment. His slate, approaches and field direction have not been enough to lift a team that has players to shine beyond their possibilities. Not to mention that he has not managed to get the best out of the majority.

The first thing Joan Laporta has to do, taking into account that the club is experiencing a transition phase both economically and sportingly, is to look for a coach who is committed to a game idea that empowers his best players and who trusts him young talent in the quarry, which has to be the club’s main bet due to its financial problems.

The match against Bayern Munich it was just a clear example of what the Barcelona coach has to do. He opted for an idea of ​​very defensive juice and without variations to be able to get out of the pressure of his rival, betting on an idea that his main pieces are not used to. Players like Frenkie de Jong, Busquets and Pedri were lost on the court. His gene is not to play this way.

And, as if that were not enough, he opted for young talents (Gavi, Yusuf Demir, Alex Baldé) when the team was 0-2 on the scoreboard and with no options to respond. He did not leave them the best context to debut, taking into account that they did not have many options to show their best versions. A bad game in every way for Ronald Koeman, to which we have to add that he is still in a war against Joan Laporta on a communicative level.

The fact that explains everything easily is that, according to Mister Chip, it is the first time that FC Barcelona has not shot a single time on target in the history of the UEFA Champions League. It is amazing that such a big club cannot generate danger, regardless of its rival on duty.

Barcelona need a different and more talented coach when it comes to exploiting the two aforementioned variants. The presence of Koeman does not improve Barcelona, ​​although for him it is. “The club has a future thanks to me,” he commented at the time. He is not a bad coach, but there is no doubt that such an important club has been very big for him.

Laporta, before thinking about Haaland or Dani Olmo, looks for a new coach who can give game and life to a team that dragged itself on the Camp Nou pitch against Bayern Munich, which has a new coach and is not yet at the level of the best teams in Europe (Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City and PSG).
