Sportsmail reported yesterday that, in the wake of a difficult week which saw his side fall to a defeat by Bayern Munich and draw with minnows Granada, Koeman has just a handful of games left to save his job.
And as the pressure continues to mount on his shoulders, rather than taking questions from reporters as usual, Koeman read out a lengthy statement about the situation at the Nou Camp before leaving the room.
In total, the extraordinary conference lasted just three minutes - and Koeman also refused to answer the follow-ups from the media.
After taking a seat, he began to read from a pre-prepared script, saying: The club is with me as the 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 without being able to make any big financial investments. This needs time.'
