Real Madrid and Barcelona played their first El Clasico encounter this season which saw Los Blancos come out victorious with a 2-1 win at the Camp Nou. This result further puts more pressure on Ronald Koeman's career as Barca's head coach.
Koeman is the first Barcelona manager in 81 years to lose his first three El Clasico. The result with Real Madrid this weekend didn't go down well with some Barcelona fans and they decided to take things into their hands.
Some fans attacked Ronald Koeman's car on his way out of the stadium after the match ended. Fans were quick to show their displeasure and wants his tenure as manager of the club to end as soon as possible.
Here are two reasons why this action by some fans is wrong:
It Doesn't Change Anything
Mobbing Koeman on his way out doesn't change or add anything to the club. Barcelona is now 9th on the table and this action can't change that. The board has shown support for him despite his continued poor performances and this action wouldn't change the president's mind in keeping him as manager till the end of the season.
Could Make Him Feel Like an Outsider
This reaction from fans only works to alienate the coach from the club. It makes him feel isolated and unwanted in the club even though he's trying his possible best to improve his team. Koeman very well doesn't like the situation his team finds themselves and so fans shouldn't take it out on him. He can't give what he doesn't have.
This back and forth confrontation between Koeman and the fans doesn't bode well for the club and its reputation. It may breed a toxic work environment for future employees of the club.
What happens to Koeman after this encounter remains to be seen. The Barcelona hierarchy has already quickly condemned the actions of the fans who mobbed Koeman's car and promised disciplinary actions.
