Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Ronaldo Koeman who is the manager of Spanish giants Barcelona has demonstrated that he is under serious pressure at Camp Nou after failing to answer any question at the press conference.
Barcelona have been struggling this season in all competitions since Lionel Messi left for Paris Saint-Germain, and the club's fans are not happy with the situation.
Last week, Barcelona suffered an embarrassing defeat in the Champions League against Bayern Munich and even defender Gerard Pique admitted that his side are not the favourites for the title.
Barcelona will be facing Cadiz on Thursday, September 21, in what is expected to be another tough La Liga game for the Catalans and they must seek redemption with this fixture.

Ronald Koeman's statement
"The club is with me as a coach, in a situation of rebuilding. The financial situation of the club is connected to the sporting activities, and vice versa.
"This means that we as a team have to rebuild the football team without being able to make any big financial investments.
"This needs time. The young talent today could end up being the next big world stars, in just a few years.''
Barcelona are currently occupying eight position on the Spanish La Liga table and they must improve so as climb to the top four.
Koeman speaks on Lionel Messi's attitude at Barcelona
Earlier, YEN.com.gh had reported how the manager of Barcelona football club of Spain, Ronald Koeman, branded ex-captain Lionel Messi as ‘a tyrant’ who wants to win everything; even in training.
The Argentine legend was forced out of the club following financial problems between the club and the La Liga board during the summer.
According to Koeman, Messi’s attitude in training spurred his teammates to become better players, helping to raise the standard of their game as a unit.
The six-time Ballon d’Or winner has moved to join French Ligue 1 side Paris Saint Germain, but Koeman insists that he observed that Barcelona players played better because of Messi.
