Atletico defeat makes Laporta’s Koeman decision indefensible

Look at the picture above. Ronald Koeman is all of us right now, and for a number of reasons.

The narrative is becoming a little tiresome too it must be said.

Barca play a big team, Koeman’s tactics leave much to be desired, big team wins.

Let’s not forget that Diego Simeone hadn’t beaten the blaugranes in the league in his entire tenure at Atletico Madrid until the Dutchman rolled into town.

El Cholo has now beaten Barca twice in the Spanish top-flight and at a canter it must be said.

Simple football, sticking to a game play and executing once well-worked chances allow.
