Ronald Koeman has broken a number of unwanted records during his time at Barcelona and pressure continues to mount on the Dutchman following a string of disappointing results this season.

Barca dropped to ninth on the LaLiga table following their 2-0 defeat to Atletico Madrid on Saturday. And a number of decisions made by Koeman have contributed to the team's current standing in the league.

Things have gone downhill for the Catalan giants and last week's 3-0 loss to Benfica in the Champions League best exemplified how bad things are the club right now - Barca failed to register a single shot on target during game.

Twitter user, @Leomessigoated1, has put together a list of all the things that have gone wrong and the unwanted records Koeman has broken at the club.

The thread points out that Benfica hadn't beaten Barcelona since 1960 before last Tuesday's result.

Despite the results of late, Joan Laporta has publicly backed the under-fire boss, claiming he has the board's "full support" and will not be sacked any time soon.

Speaking ahead of Saturday night's loss to Atletico Madrid, Laport said: "Ronald Koeman will continue as the coach of Barca, he deserves a margin of confidence. Koeman is a cule and a reference point for Barcelona.

“I have spoken with him and I have drawn my conclusions. I really appreciate that he is leading Barca at a time of difficulty.”
