After the latest loss away against Rayo Vallecano, FC Barcelona have made the dismissal of coach Ronald Koeman official.

Ever since his takeover at the Catalan club, the Dutchman has failed to bring the results. Despite making bold claims earlier such as ‘thanks to me, this club has a future’, the 58-year-old did not meet the expectations.

The official statement reads:

FC Barcelona has dismissed Ronald Koeman as coach of the first team tonight. The president of the club, Joan Laporta, has informed him after the defeat against Rayo Vallecano. Ronald Koeman will say goodbye to the squad this Thursday at the Ciudad Deportiva.

FC Barcelona wants to thank you for the services provided to the entity and wishes you good luck in your professional career.

With a mid-table finish, Europa League, and most importantly Deportivo Alaves on the weekend staring Barcelona in the face, it will be interesting to see Joan Laporta’s next move. He’s played it safe until now, but what set of dominos will fall from here for FC Barcelona? Only time will tell.
