I haven't watched the whole game, but it seems that it was a classic Atletico performance against a team that is happy to just park the bus.What happened with Atletico in the 2nd game, @drd23 ?
Did you watch the match? When I said he gives zero fu**s, I really mean it. He looked totally bored with himself. I think the Barcelona job would be incredibly stressful and it’s showing with Koeman. I don’t know how much thought went into hiring Ronald Koeman but not much on the evidence.I still have no idea how he landed the Barca gig after failing at Everton.
Koeman was hired by an unpopular president, Bartomeu, who was starting his last season at the club, and who has resigned last week. The candidates for the presidential election will likely bring their own coach, and whoever was going to be coach this season knew this. On top of that, due to the pandemic and Bartomeu mismanaging the club (lack of long term planning and handing the club an enormous wage bill), the club had no money to spend on transfers at a time when it was clearly needed. It was more a matter of who wants to coach this Barcelona than who does Barcelona want to be their coach.I don’t know how much thought went into hiring Ronald Koeman but not much on the evidence.
