Due to his recent suspension, Ronald Koeman might miss FC Barcelona’s next two crucial matches in the Spanish La Liga.
Ronald Koeman’s next two La Liga matches are in jeopardy at FC Barcelona due to a recent suspension he had. During the second half of the match against Granada, the Dutch manager was sent off after calling the red a ‘special character’. This happened after Ronald felt he was being insulted by the fourth referee who was on the sidelines next to him. During matches, we know how heated things can get with Koeman trying to talk to his players. It’s no secret he can get flustered easily and sometimes even lose control of what he says.
La Liga took this moment to officially suspend him for the next two matches but the club already made an appeal to the ban. If the suspension is upheld, this could be a massive blow to Koeman’s intentions to take FC Barcelona to glory this season. Although his impact is not massive during matches, he has proven to be very important for the players.
Which matches will Ronald Koeman miss?
As long as the suspension stands, Ronald Koeman could miss the two most important games of the season for FC Barcelona. We previously told our readers how he will definitely miss the match against Valencia in Mestalla on Sunday. This has major importance due to Koeman’s past as the club’s manager when he was still highly inexperienced. But the most massive blow could be a week from now at Camp Nou Stadium.
To those who aren’t keeping track of the Spanish La Liga, next week’s fixtures will be complete thrillers. Saturday will bring us FC Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid at Camp Nou and Koeman could miss it. On Sunday, Sevilla play against Real Madrid in another crunch match. If the Dutchman misses that game, it could seriously hinder his side’s chances to win the title.
