For the second year in a row, Bayern Munich have been knocked out of the German Cup in the second round. The Bavarians weren’t just beaten by Borussia Mönchengladbach; they suffered a defeat of historic proportions.
On the other hand, Barcelona fire Ronald Korman after another poor performance. Barcelona now part way with the head coach after he lost a string of games.
Barcelona announced Koeman’s firing shortly after the team’s 1-0 loss at Rayo Vallecano in the Spanish league on Wednesday.
The loss followed a 2-1 home loss to rival Real Madrid in the “clásico” at the Camp Nou Stadium on Sunday.
Koeman had said in a post-match interview Wednesday he didn’t know if his future with the club was at risk.
He soon found out. Club president Joan Laporta informed the Dutch coach of his decision after the loss. Captain Sergio Busquets had said Koeman shouldn’t be the only one to blame for the team’s poor performances.
“We are all on the same boat,” the midfielder said after the match, before the decision on Koeman was announced.
