BarcelonaA devastating fact reveals the harsh reality of Ronald Koeman’s Barça: the four demanding matches this season have ended in defeat. They have not been defeated by the minimum closing the rivals until the last minute, but signs of inferiority that sponsor another partial that is not a reason for parties: ten goals against and only one in favor, the which marked Agüero in the 97th minute of Sunday’s classic. “Barça no longer have players of the level and effectiveness they once had,” said technical secretary Ramon Planes, after falling to Madrid at the Camp Nou. The Lleida native is, for the time being, in charge of offering the institutional vision when the referees whistle the end. This has been decided by the club’s new management, which prefers not to burn figures associated with the arrival of Joan Laporta – such as Mateu Alemany, Jordi Cruyff or Rafael Yuste – in the post-matches, which is when the blood can boil. These are ungrateful times in sports, complicated to hotly defend a project that still drags the mismanagement of the board of Bartomeu.
