Ronald Koeman, as per the man himself, did not use his official Twitter account to take shots at rumoured Barcelona “insiders”.
Throughout the course of his time with the Spanish giants there have been reports of “leaks” within the Nou Camp to go alongside a whole host of other issues the club has had to endure. From losing ground on the two Madrid sides to the parade of high-level players who have departed, it feels as if we’re coming into a rebuilding phase for Barcelona that could go on for quite some time.
The Peppa Pig revelation
Koeman is obviously going to do everything in his power to fight back and earn the trust of the fanbase, but as of this writing, that notion feels quite distant.
The Dutchman appeared to stir the pot even further yesterday when tweeting out a video from an episode of Peppa Pig that features “Molly Mole”. It came across as a reference to the possible “moles” that have hampered his tenure as manager but after deleting the message, Koeman went out to clarify that it was a simple error that came from his grandchildren.

Ronald Koeman comes across as a nice enough chap but the scale of the task at hand really can’t be ignored. If they’re going to be competitive this season and really go after some silverware, he needs to pull off of the biggest managerial turnarounds of our generation.
The 58-year-old isn’t going to go down without a fight and the club is said to have full confidence in him, which should ensure a fascinating few months as we head into 2022 and the end of the international break.
