Former Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman, has claimed Barcelona president Joan Laporta must have learned his lessons.

Koeman didn’t last long as Barca’s coach, and was sacked in 2021 by Joan Laporta before being replaced by Xavi.

The former Barca coach slammed club president Joan Laporta for lying to him and not protecting him in the media.

However, Laporta has always spoken highly of Xavi, and wants Xavi to remain as manager.

“Laporta has learned how to protect a coach, compared to before,” Ronald Koeman has said in his press conference.

“Yes, that coffee continues to get cold with Laporta. It’s hard because I think differently about many things than him.”

Xavi has proven himself at Barcelona. After replacing the sacked Koeman, Xavi took the club from ninth in the La Liga to a second place finish.

Xavi will rake in trophies the following season, Barca won the Spanish Super Cup and La Liga.

Barcelona have hopes of winning the Champions League this season.
