La Liga managers in trouble

Ronald Koeman, Míchel and Robert Moreno are all under to pressure to keep their jobs at their respective La Liga clubs.

Marca have produced a report outlining the reasons why each manager is coming under pressure.

Koeman – Barcelona

Barcelona are reportedly preparing to sack Ronald Koeman. The departure of Lionel Messi has obviously not helped the Dutch coach. Their start to the league season has not been so bad in terms of results (three wins and three draws), but they remain pointless in the Champions League with crushing defeats against Bayern Munich and Benfica.

Koeman’s bad relationship with club president Joan Laporta is not helping matters. All this could lead to his sacking in a short space of time, although the financial problems at Camp Nou will not make it easy for the Catalan club. Sacking Koeman will cost Barcelona approximately €12 million. Former player Xavi Hernández and Roberto Martinez, the current Belgium coach, are among the favourites to take over if Koeman is sacked.

Míchel – Getafe

Míchel is most likely to be the first manager sacked in La Liga this season. His Getafe side are bottom of the table with zero points and just two goals scored. They have lost all their games by the narrowest of margins except for the two games against Real Betis and Rayo Vallecano. Míchel’s second spell in charge of Getafe has not started well. On Sunday, they will play at home to high-flying Real Sociedad at the Coliseum, where he will be aiming to put an end to their poor start to the campaign.

Moreno – Granada

Robert Moreno is making Granada fans realise just how good they had it under former boss Diego Martínez. From a dream season, with Granada in the Europa League, they now find themselves in the relegation zone after the first seven games. Three draws and four defeats means the Andalusian outfit sit on just three points in 18th place. This weekend sees Granada take on Sevilla.
