Tata Martino has reportedly “lost” the dressing room at Barcelona.
This is according to a Monday report in Marca that also suggested the Argentine would not be in charge of the Catalan giants next season “barring an unthinkable turn of events.”
Club captain Carles Puyol has since stated he and his teammates “can’t control the criticism” of their manager and that it was “easier to attack the coach” than the squad, as per Marca.
But an early Champions League exit combined with a disappointing showing in La Liga will likely see Martino leave the Camp Nou in the summer, and speculation is already building regarding his replacement.
