"Fix it if you don't love me; don't leave me like this"


Ronald Koeman's agent charges against the Blaugrana president in the documentary 'Força Koeman', recorded a long time ago and currently being broadcast.

As if it were a soap opera,

the story of disagreements between Joan Laporta, president of Barça, and Ronald Koeman, Dutch coach, with Rob Jansen, coach's agent, as a witness, find a new chapter in the documentary

Força Koeman

that is broadcast these days in the Dutch country.

In it, all the differences that have been explained all these months come to light.

And, although in his last speech, Koeman spoke of a "perfect relationship" with the president, it is very clear that neither Laporta believes in the Wembley hero nor he is comfortable in this situation.

“The president is the president and he is here to make decisions.

I told him to tell me that I am not good enough to coach the team so that we could end that story.

I said: Fix it if you don't want me.

Do it.

But do not leave me with this uncertainty by telling me that you will go out to look for other options, "

explains Koeman in the documentary.

It goes back, then, to those famous weeks of "conversations" in which Laporta took him to eat at the Via Veneto to, in theory, give him certain guidelines about what he expected of him.

Then, however, he asked for time to find a coach, although he could not find one.

In the documentary, Rob Jansen, the Dutchman's agent, also plays an interesting role, who is extremely tough on Laporta, whom he calls a hypocrite

: "It was a crazy decision (to do without Koeman), based on nothing. Based only on his feelings. Crazy. I did not speak to Laporta again. But,

fortunately, the people around him contributed to Koeman staying. So, the president came out before the media saying that they would continue together, that they are friends ... this is the hypocrisy of sport high level".

Rob Jansen refers to Mateu Alemany and Ramon Planes, who are the ones who made Laporta see reason for Koeman to continue.

The latest events give relevance to this document and return the relationship to an extreme situation.
