Barcelona manager receives support from unexpected place during sacking debacle

Atletico Madrid will be facing FC Barcelona this weekend in La Liga. While that match will be a much-awaited fixture at any time, it is particularly important now for Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman’s career. However, he found unexpected support from his rival coach, Diego Simeone.

It has been well publicised that Koeman’s job is on the line this weekend, and he will likely face the sack if Barcelona fail to defeat Atletico. However, in his pre-match press conference, Simeone said that “Koeman has shown a lot of character and I wish him all the best.” He claims that he does not read the rumours, and that each person is worried about his own personal situation.
