FC Barcelona was defeated 0-3 in their first Champions League game in the post-Leo Messi and post-Antoine Griezmann era. With a transfer market more than agitated, the Barça team faced the game with numerous casualties on the offensive plot and with the feeling of being the Barça that has had the most insecurities in recent years. This was demonstrated during the match with the overwhelming victory of the Bavarian team.
Manu Carreño, director of ‘El Larguero’ started the program by looking at the team’s box and at all the extra-football commotion that has been generated in recent days: messages, leaks, tweets, etc.
“All this, Mr. Laporta, does not help FC Barcelona. It must be very hard to have a coach like Koeman in whom you do not believe and not have money to throw him out. He is playing to see if Koeman throws in the towel so that he leaves and not pay him compensation, and I think that is not honest, “said Manu Carreño about the Barça president.
Carreño said that what he has to do is fire him if it is not to the liking of the president of the club, but the leaks that have been sown also influence what happens on the pitch. “The players know that on the bench there is a corpse sportingly speaking. Today there have been some whistles and beware that over time they do not go to the box because there are several unfulfilled promises by Laporta”, maintained the director of ‘El Larguero’.
Finally, Carreño also showed signs of the bad relationship between the president and the Barça coach, because Koeman does not seem to be paying too much attention to Laporta. He placed three centrals, Riqui Puig did not play for a minute, etc. Moreover, against Bayern Demir, Gavi, Mingueza, Pedri, Araujo played … all young players, while Riqui did not participate in the clash.
“This is a divorce, or rather, it is a marriage of convenience. I think that they do not do the footballers any favors. There will be more quality and more or less level, but what Laporta is doing, I think it hurts and it also has a part of guilt with what happened today, “concluded Manu Carreño.
