Barca board back coach Rijkaard

FC Barcelona know one thing very well and that is not to wash their dirty linens in public. reports that the club’s Board of directors has ended its meeting this week in a vote of confidence or the club’s coach Frank Rijkaard.

Rijkaard is in his first season at Camp Nou but this season he has had to face severe criticism from section of the media. The Catalan giants are already 9 points off the pace and there is no likelihood that Real Madrid are going to drop 9 points in La Liga in the remainder of the season.

But the Board has decided to stick with the Dutchman until the end of the season at least. Although this must be a relief for the under-speculation Rijkaard, he just cannot afford to rest too much. He has to think about UEFA Champions League football from next month and also has to discover some tactic to march on a winning stride in the league.
