The Catalan press furious with Barça
A failure “unforgivable”. “A drama”. This is what we find plastered in one of the three main Catalan sports dailies this Friday morning. Mundo Deportivo and Sport have chosen not to forgive Ronald Koeman’s men for their missed opportunity to take the lead in La Liga with 5 match days remaining. While L’Esportiu chose instead to refer to the “drama” after this setback against the Andalusian formation (1-2). FC Barcelona therefore remains 3rd in the championship this morning, tied on points with Real Madrid and still 2 units from Atlético. A real “Thunderclap” for Ace while Marca thanks Grenada for having “Burnt down La Liga” yesterday and to have left Real in the race. Without forgetting Sevilla FC, 4th 3 points behind the Colchoneros, and whose Estadio Deportivo recalls that Andalusians are indeed part of “this film” worthy of the greatest Hollywood thrillers.
Neymar’s extension called into question?
What if Neymar’s almost completed contract extension at Paris Saint-Germain was finally seriously slowed down? According to the newspaper Sport this morning, the Parisian club’s defeat on Wednesday night in the Champions League against Manchester City (1-2) greatly disappointed the Brazilian star. Critics designate him too. Enough to question his new lease? Possible, according to the media which writes that Wednesday’s disappointment is strong at Neymar. The newspaper also recalls that he still has in the back of his mind the desire to return to Barcelona. But all this, needless to remind you, should be taken with a grain of salt.
Coutinho at Everton?
While Barca are trying to extend Lionel Messi and on the pitch, Ronald Koeman’s team are playing for the title, some are already thinking about next season. This is the case of Philippe Coutinho, too often injured and no longer used this season by the Dutch technician. The Brazilian will leave this summer and according to The Sun, would have already chosen his destination. He will return to England, to Liverpool to sign with Everton! Carlo Ancelotti would have convinced him to come and try the challenge. The English media speaks of a transfer to 40 M €. A fairly exceptional loss therefore awaits FC Barcelona who will be able to rank Coutinho at the top of the pile of the most economically catastrophic files in its history.
