Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman makes resignation decision after Bayern Munich battering

“Hello, Cules, I am as outraged and hurt as you are,” said Laporta.

“What is happening is one of the scenarios that we contemplated, and I ask you be patient and continue to support the team.

“And I also ask you to be confident in those of us who are leading the club. We need your trust and time, and have no doubt that we will solve this situation.”

Speaking after the defeat, Koeman admitted that Bayern had a better squad than his own in comments that don’t bode well for the future.

“There were only three strikers available,” said Koeman after the defeat.
