In an unexpected show of unity, FC Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman and club president Joan Laporta shared the same message ahead of Thursday’s La Liga match against Cadiz.
Both men rallied fans to support the team and asked for their patience.
Koeman faced members of the media in a pre-match press conference where he read out a short statement.
In an unusual move, he walked out before giving the press time to roast him with questions about his future and the club’s recent disappointing results.
Speculations have risen that Koeman might be sacked if Barcelona fails to secure a victory on Thursday.
However, Laporta and the Dutchman called for patience amid the club’s rebuilding process.
