Koeman given four games to save his Barcelona future

FC Barcelona has given manager Ronald Koeman a total of four games to save his career at the club.

It is reported that an emergency meeting was held immediately after the 3-0 hammering to Bayern Munich and Koeman's future dominated the discussion.

Javi Miguel from AS reports that the meeting attended by Rafa Yuste, Mateu Alemany, and Joan Laporta reached a consensus that it was too early to jump to any decisions but gave the Dutchman four more games to convince them.

The Catalans are up against Granada, Cadiz, Levante, and Benfica in their next four games and it remains to be seen how he will perform in the tests that might decide his future.

According to the reports, the clash against Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano will not count in deciding his continuity as a defeat against Los Rojiblancos is considered acceptable under the notion of the growth or transition of the team.

Koeman will have to do well in the next four games despite having a chunk of his first-team players out with injuries. Ansu Fati, Ousmane Dembele, Sergio Aguero, and Martin Braithwaite will not be able to help their manager save his position as they are expected to be out during that period.
