Following Barcelona’s 1-0 away loss to Rayo Vallecano, there was an improvised meeting between the club executives in the team’s bus and later on the aeroplane back to Catalonia to discuss Ronald Koeman’s future, Deporters Cuatro claim.
While on the plane, one of the board members present reportedly told the president: “Jan, Koeman cannot stay for a minute longer. We have hit rock bottom.”
Deporters Cuatro also show images of the coach before and after the news of his dismissal. Right after the game, Koeman was reading the news on his phone and looked concerned.
By the time of his landing in Barcelona, the Dutchman had already been told that he would not continue at Camp Nou.
