The Catalan giants' shaky start to the season continued as they drew 0-0 with Cadiz on Thursday evening, although they played the last 20 minutes with 10 men after Frenkie de Jong.

Koeman was also sent to the stands in the closing stages of the encounter and he was in disbelief about the referee's decision.

“They didn't send me off for nervousness, they sent me off for telling the referee that there was a second ball and the game had to be stopped," he told Barca TV.

"In this country, they send you off for nothing! I asked why and he said 'attitude, attitude' ... we better leave it.”

The Barcelona coach also disagreed with Sergi Roberto's claim about challenging for the LaLiga title this seaason.

“I have already said a number of times that you have to try to win each game, that you have to try to win titles," he added.

“But you have to be realistic. One has to see the squad that we have, the people that we are missing.

“And also, I have said that if all the players are available…but we are still missing seven.”

Here are eight available managers who could replace Ronald Koeman at Barcelona:
