Even the most optimistic Barcelona fans knew this was going to be a difficult season, but no one could have predicted the club's first crisis to be in September.
The Champions League defeat against Bayern has generated doubts around the team and Ronald Koeman's decisions.
The bad performance by the team at home against Bayern Munich puts Koeman's job on thin ice, with some board members already asking for him to get sacked.
Despite many board members expressing their desire to Laporta, the chances of Koeman getting sacked immediatly are really slim, as the club would have to indemnify the Dutchman as well as finding a replacement.
Jordi Cruyff, Laporta's adviser, is positioned as the most likely successor, however, Johan's son doesn't want to replace Koeman because he is a long-term family friend. Sergi Barjuan, Barcelona B manager, is not an option as the board doesn't consider he is well-prepared for the job.
With the current situation and Xavi managing in Qatar, Ronald Koeman will most likely remain as Barcelona's coach, but a couple more bad results could change everything, the next couple of games are must-wins for the Dutch coach and Barça's team.
