Ronald Koeman expressed his frustration towards club president Joan Laporta.
The Dutch manager claims he has a good relationship with Laporta despite Laporta leaking information surrounding a contract renewal.
According to reports, Laporta is ready to extend Koeman’s contract if he meets all three conditions.
One of them is to hand more game time to players such as Riqui Puig.
Koeman said: “Last Monday he said in a TV program that there is confidence in me. That has been good. Before that, there were two moments when things came out that didn’t indicate support for the trainer. I was annoyed by that. Two and a half weeks ago we had a conversation about a new contract.
“Nothing was leaked to the media. Until the chairman had a session with journalists last Tuesday about the situation of the club, also the financial side and such. In the end he suddenly started talking about the contract. A day later, the newspapers stated: Koeman can get a new contract under three conditions. Then I said: this is not possible. I need to be able to control how we play and who I field. Then the chairman came on Monday with that TV interview. And that has been good.”
