Opinion: It Would Not Be Fair To Sack Ronald Koeman At This Point

Many people have expressed concern over Ronald Koeman's long-term future at Barcelona. Following Barcelona's performances against Bayern Munich and Granada, many fans have expressed their dissatisfaction with the team's performance.

Names such as Xavi Hernandes, Pirlo, Roberto Martinez, and Conte, on the other side, have been mentioned as possible replacements for Ronald Koeman. It must be acknowledged, however, that Ronald Koeman deserves to be given some leeway in this situation. Ronald Koeman should not be fired, in my opinion, because many other top managers may not be able to perform as well as he does. As a result, I've compiled a list of some legitimate arguments for why it would be unreasonable to fire Ronald Koeman at this time. Take a look at this!

1. He's in charge of a squad that's having problems.

The first item to consider is Barcelona's existing roster of players. Despite the fact that many Barcelona fans were critical of Koeman for playing "untypical" Barcelona football versus Granada, it must be acknowledged that the Dutchman tried his best for the squad. Barcelona is accustomed to playing "Tiki-Taka" style football, but a closer study at the team reveals that the team has room to develop in several areas. In the match against Granada, Ronald Koeman deployed Garcia, Dest, Araujo, and Balde as his defensive options. Please keep in mind that this is a fairly inexperienced backline that will require time to adjust. Barcelona was missing players like as Ansu Fati, Ousmane Dembele, Kun Aguero, and Martin Braithwaite in the attack, and the fact is that these players could have contributed more to the club if they had not been injured in the first place.

Furthermore, Ronald Koeman should be commended for using Araujo and Pique as centre forwards in the dying minutes of the Granada match in extra time. It is important to note that this single play resulted in a goal.

Ronald Koeman, on the other hand, I feel, deserves a second chance to establish himself when his squad is fully fit.

2. He seized control of Barcelona during a difficult period.

To begin with, Barcelona is now undergoing a financial crisis, and Ronald Koeman should be commended for summoning the bravery to accept the position as manager of the club. Notably, despite the fact that Barcelona has lost talents such as Messi and Griezmann, Koeman is still working to get the squad back on track with the younger players. It would be unfair to fire the Dutch International, on the other hand.
