Sequel to the 1-0 defeat yesterday night, the management board of Barcelona Football club has now relieved Ronald Koeman as the head coach of the team.
The Dutchman was sacked as head coach of Barcelona after 14 months in charge.
After weeks of speculation, Koeman's final game was the 1-0 defeat by Rayo Vallecano in La Liga on Wednesday night, their fourth defeat in six games in all competitions.

Barca are trailing the league frontrunners Real Madrid by six points in the table.
