Ronald Koeman: Josep Maria Bartomeu's resignation does not affect my job

Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman is confident that there will be no repercussions to the position of head coach after the resignation of Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu.

Speaking about his role at the club, Koeman said: 

"I don’t think [Bartomeu’s resignation] affects my position and if there is something that changes my situation they have to speak to me. I work as the head coach of Barcelona. We want to get the best results and perform well and improve our game individually and as a team. That is our job, where we are going to put our energy."

He added:

"The things outside of sport are not in our hands. We will see what happens. I’m not liberated far from it. Everyone has their own thoughts about what happened [with Bartomeu]. What the team has shown today is that it has not affected us. If something affected us, we would now have played a game like we did today."

Although Ronald Koeman's Barcelona are lingering at the 12th spot after five games in LaLiga, there have been positive signs under the new manager.
