“I didn’t speak to Laporta again. But thankfully, the people around him managed to let Koeman stay,” Ronald Koeman’s agent, Rob Jansen, has said in the Forza Koeman documentary film.
“Eventually, Laporta himself came out to the media with ‘we are going to continue, we are friends, etc.’ That’s the hypocrisy of top sport,” he added.
Back in May, Joan Laporta confirmed he ‘would look for other managerial options’ before sticking to Ronald Koeman. This situation caused much controversy as Koeman’s entourage were asking for some respect towards the manager.
Despite Koeman’s hints about his complicated relationship with the president, Laporta insists that everything is fine between the two.
