Why Barcelona head coach Ronald Koeman is already losing faith in the board

Koeman is losing faith at Barcelona

Barcelona are a mess right now. 

Luis Suarez has just bid a tearful farewell to his former teammates, leaving Camp Nou after six years with the club. 

He'll link up with La Liga rivals Atletico Madrid ahead of the new season and not only are Barca losing a brilliant player, but they've upset star man Lionel Messi too. 

Responding to Suarez sharing a goodbye message on social media, the Argentine said:

"You deserved a farewell befitting who you are: one of the most important players in the history of the club, achieving great things for the team and on an individual level. 

"You did not deserve for them to throw you out like they did. But the truth is that at this stage nothing surprises me any more." 

Given Messi expressed his own desire to leave earlier this summer, his latest comments will not fill supporters with much hope. 

Messi could be off next summer

It sounds like he'll be staying at the club for one more season - and no longer. But Barcelona's captain isn't the only one upset with the board. 

According to Marca, head coach Ronald Koeman is also beginning to lose trust in those running the club. 

That's rather worrying, considering he's only been at Camp Nou for one month. 

Koeman is already losing trust

Koeman has reportedly told close friends that he feels the board have 'unnecessarily left him in a very uncomfortable situation' in regards to the squad. 

Per Marca, the controversy over how Suarez has left the club and a lack of signings have put the Dutchman in a scenario he didn't imagine when he took over in August. 

He feels the president and other directors have left him 'defenceless' while having to work with the members of the squad who are revolting against decisions. 

Koeman isn't happy at Barca

With La Liga kicking off again this weekend, it's a far from ideal situation. Good luck, Barcelona fans...
