Before the Copa Del Rey final against Bilbao, Barcelona manager Koeman slams the critics

Ronald Koeman has hit back at reports that the Copa del Rey final against Athletic Bilbao on Saturday will determine his future as Barcelona boss.
Koeman, 58, has had a mixed first season in charge since joining on a two-year contract last summer.
Barca is in a three-way title battle with both Madrid clubs thanks to a revival, but there have been significant defeats, such as last week’s El Clasico.
According to local media, if Koeman fails to win silverware, he will be fired.
“It’s funny that I have to react to these types of questions because we went 19 games without losing,” the Dutchman explained.
“We’ve already lost one game, and I need to talk about my future?”
“Perhaps I should consider this. My deal is for another year. I understand there is a lot of pressure, and I can handle it, but it can be weird at times.”
Barcelona is currently in third place in La Liga, two points behind leaders Atletico Madrid, but they have lost a lot of crucial games this season.
