Laporta out of luck with his choice of manager to replace Koeman at Barcelona

The next week to 10 days are bound to be incredibly busy for Joan Laporta and his board at FC Barcelona.

During his first press conference as president of the club, again, on Friday, Laporta intimated that some new signings would be announced in the course of the next week, but he stopped short of giving a full endorsement of manager, Ronald Koeman.

He also couldn’t confirm that a deal had been struck for Lionel Messi, per MARCA.

It’s believed that the president is trying to get the band back together for want of a better phrase, and that includes bringing back Pep Guardiola as manager.

Now at Man City, Guardiola can well do without rumours about his career on the eve of the first Champions League final he’s led a team in for 10 years, the last time coming at Wembley Stadium 10 years ago today, when his Barcelona took Sir Alex Ferguson’s Man United side to the cleaners.

It appears there’s nothing in it either, as Guardiola is set to stay at City, whether or not they win the trophy, according to a tweet from reliable journalist, Fabrizio Romano.

    I am not in any way support Koeman during his managerial carrier but, I am Barca fan that’s for sure, but I look back at the transition when he arrives, cos its right to do away with likes of Vidal, Suarez, Rakitic, & more, the integration of younger players into the team is without doubt an achievement worth praising, and his collapse towards the end of season rise brown eyes. But all in all he deserves a second season with replacement of pique, reinforcement at the midfield, he insist in bringing forward, the sell of ummtiti, dembele, bretawaite, pjanic, Roberto, coutinho, Ruiq, etc will make the team competitive, I want Laporta to reconsider his decision to put his faith on Koeman and allow him to continue next season. Journalists are fueling matters,
