Barca presindent Joan Laporta had said a few hours before kick-off that Koeman would countinue as coach regardless of the result at the Wanda Metropolitano ,but another limp display will put that commitment to the test over the two week international break.
Koeman confirmed after the game he spoke to Laport on Friday night and Saturday morning.He said he welcomed the clarity over his future ,which he believe will benefit the team.
Clarity is very important for the confidence of the coach is still here, said Koeman.He has made his decision as he said this afternoon, so everything is perfect .
Goal score Suarez put his hands together and looked up to the sky in what was initialy mute celebration ,out of respect for his former club where he spent six years and score 198 goals
It was out of respect ,love for the journey I had at Barca and for the period they in at the moment ,for the fans as well, said Suarez after the game.
But the Uruguayan also made a telephone gesture and appeared to aim it at Koeman,perhaps referencing the arbrupt manner.
Barca coach told him he was surplus to requirement at Camp Nou ,just over a year ago.That was for the people who think I'm still using the same rumber ,said Suarez with a smile.
They at least avoided more embarrassment in the second half and it remains to be seen now whetherLaporta stays true to his world by givi-ng Koeman more time to turn things around.
Xavi Hernandez,Roberto Martnez and Andrea Pirlo have reportedly been the names under consideration as replacements.
With Gerand Pique back peddling onto the line ,Suarez picked his spot.
