After Barcelona's shambolic performance against Bayern Munich at the Camp Nou, many controversies about Koeman's future have circulated on the internet. Note that many fans have raised questions about Ronald Koeman been the right man for the job.

What Are The Complains About Ronald Koeman?
Firstly, there have been complaints about his tactical approach to a game. In Barcelona's opening UEFA Champions League game, the concerns were not about the scoreline but about the way the team played. It was clear that Barcelona lost his identity. For the first time, Barcelona didn't register a single shot on goal against Barcelona. A closer look at Barcelona's last match also shows that Barcelona tried to absorb Bayern Munich's pressure, and this isn't the Barcelona way. Also, Barcelona was never in control of the game.

However, because of the above reasons, Ronald Koeman could be sacked before his contract with Barcelona expires. Therefore, I made a compilation of two things Koeman has done as Barcelona's coach that he'll be remembered for even if he's sacked. Take a look!
1. He Gave The Younger Players Opportunities In The First Team.

Ronald Koeman gave players like Pedri, Araujo, Mingueza, Gavi, Nico, Dest, Demir, Balde, and Garcia a chance with the first team. Note that none of these players is up to 23-year-old. During Koeman's first season, Pedri had an exceptional season with Barcelona. The youngster featured in almost all Barcelona's games. Similarly, Araujo, Dest, and Mingueza established their place in the season.

Furthermore, young players like Balde, Demir, and Gavi made their Championship League debut this season. Note that Koeman's decision to count on the younger players shows that the club has a bright future.

2. He Won A Trophy When Barcelona Was Struggling

Secondly, Ronald Koeman resigned from his job as Netherlands coach to take Barcelona managerial post. He took the job at a very critical time. However, note that the Dutchman won the Copa Del Rey when no one expected much from the team.
