Ronald Koeman is expected to remain in charge of Barcelona for their La Liga clash at Atletico Madrid on Saturday, according to Marca.
The Dutch coach is serving the second of a two-game suspension so he won’t be on the touchline but the Catalan club have chosen not to sack him following a humiliating 3-0 defeat at Benfica in the Champions League.
Barcelona president Joan Laporta reportedly had a meeting with vice-president Rafa Yuste, director of football Mateu Alemany and adviser Enric Masip after the Benfica loss, but it was decided that they should keep Koeman at least until the international break.
The match against Atletico now takes greater significance in terms of Koeman’s future. Another defeat could spell the end of his time at the club.
