According to Daniel Gironès, a journalist from Fox Sports Messico, Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman would have been hospitalized due to a state of anxiety, but his condition would not be worrying. The Blaugrana coach would have suffered from the stress accumulated in recent months in Catalonia and would have undergone preventive checks to check his state of health. His Barça, in fact, started badly and then grew during the season, coming to fight for the title. The latest negative results, however, prevented Messi and his teammates from remaining in the running until the end. Koeman has to constantly monitor his heart condition, after being operated on for a heart attack just this year.
The future of the Barcelona bench
The Dutch coach is not yet sure he will sit on the Barcelona bench again next season. Despite not winning the league, coming only third in La Liga, and being badly eliminated in the round of 16 of the Champions League by PSG, his first year as manager of the blaugrana was not totally unsuccessful. The former Everton coach, in fact, launched several interesting young people starting with Pedri and Mingueza and won the King’s Cup, earning a trophy during its first season. The new president culé Joan Laporta, however, it took him 15 days to decide the future of the Barça bench.
His dream, in fact, would be to bring back to Catalonia Pep Guardiola, even if it seems a really complicated operation at the moment. The former Bayern Munich coach, in fact, has a contract with Manchester City until 2023. The only hope that Laporta can hold on to is the possibility that Pep will win the Champions League and consider his cycle in England concluded. At that point, he might be intrigued by a return to Spain, where he should find his protégé Sergio Aguero and could help. Messi to still win something in his last years as a footballer.
