Koeman not worried about Barcelona future, hopeful of turnaround

Speaking ahead of Monday’s home game against Granada, Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman said he is not worried about his future despite criticism in the wake of last week’s drubbing by Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

“The only thing is to think about the game, think about the team,” the 58-year-old coach said. “The other things are not in my hands.”

Barcelona was outclassed and beaten 3-0 by Bayern in last Tuesday’s group stage match, with Koeman’s team failing to register a single shot on target over the 90 minutes.

In LaLiga, the Catalan club is in 10th spot, six points behind leader and arch-rival Real Madrid. But Barcelona has two games in hand, and Koeman was confident his injury-ravaged team would return to winning ways.

“So I’m calm, I’m trusting that we are going to win games as we did at the beginning of the season. We have seven points from three games, so there are a lot of games to go.

“I know, in the end, the results count and nothing else. And I have no fear for my future. Ultimately the president decides on behalf of the club.”

Barcelona will be without Ousmane Dembele, Martin Braithwaite, Pedri, Jordi Alba, Sergio Aguero and Ansu Fati for Monday’s match.
