Ronald Koeman was fired as coach of FC Barcelona on Wednesday.

The board put the 58-year-old coach aside after another defeat with the Spanish top club.

Koeman and Barcelona received a new blow on a visit to Rayo Vallecano by losing 1-0 partly due to a missed penalty by Memphis Depay.

The club is only ninth in the Spanish league.

Koeman was a trainer at Camp Nou for just over a year.

He exchanged the Dutch national team in August last year for his dream job at Barcelona, ​​the club that he won the European Cup I at Wembley in 1992 as a player with a striking free kick.

In his first season as a trainer at Camp Nou, Koeman fought back with Barcelona after a difficult start, but the title chances were eventually lost.

Since then, Koeman's position has been uncertain, although the new chairman Joan Laporta decided last summer that the Dutchman was allowed to stay.

This season has been bad for Barcelona, ​​which Lionel Messi lost to Paris Saint-Germain last summer.

Due to financial problems and injuries, the Catalans do not have such a strong team as in previous years.

The circumstances have meant that Barcelona cannot yet compete in La Liga with competitors Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid.

The club also falls short of the top teams in the Champions League.

They lost 0-3 to Bayern Munich.

The 58-year-old Koeman was working on the eleventh job in his coaching career at Camp Nou.

He was previously at the helm of Vitesse, Ajax, Benfica, PSV, Valencia, AZ, Feyenoord, Southampton, Everton and Orange.
