What Joan Laporta has said about Thomas Tuchel as Barcelona make Ronald Koeman decision

 After sacking Ronald Koeman following a 1-0 loss to Rayo Vallecano, Barcelona began their hunt for a new head coach this morning. The Dutchman was relieved of his duties at the Nou Camp after 14 months in command, with Barcelona confirming his resignation following the 1-0 defeat, which dropped the Catalan giants to ninth place in La Liga.

Barca is also struggling in the Champions League, where they have already lost twice in the group stage. Their loss to Rayo Vallecano was their third in their past four games, including a setback to Real Madrid in the El Clasico on Sunday.

In a statement, the club said: "FC Barcelona has relieved Ronald Koeman of his duties as first team coach. The president of the club, Joan Laporta, informed him of the decision after the defeat against Rayo Vallecano. Ronald Koeman will say goodbye to the squad on Thursday at the Ciutat Esportiva.
