De Jong defends Koeman after Benfica defeat

Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong has questioned whether sacking under fire head coach Ronald Koeman will actually ‘solve anything’ at a troubled Camp Nou after another abject defeat.

Having already been soundly beaten by Bayern Munich on Champions League matchday one earlier this month, Barça fell to a second successive 3-0 loss when they faced Benfica on Wednesday.

It is the club’s worst ever start to the Champions League campaign and gives them a mountain to climb if they are to avoid a first group stage elimination since the 2000/01 season.

With a disappointing start also in La Liga, the pressure has piled onto Koeman.

But the club’s problems extend far beyond the Dutchman’s coaching of the team. The ongoing financial strife has left the squad devoid of sufficient quality, while options have been further depleted because of injuries to a number of players.
