Ronald Koeman could not believe Barcelona's 1-0 defeat to Rayo Vallecano. The Dutch coach considered it unfair after his side created enough chances to get back into the game after Falcao's opener.

"I don't know if my job's in danger," Koeman responded when asked if Barça's latest defeat, their third in their last four league games, could cost him his position.

On the loss in Vallecas, he added: "It's not down to attitude or how we played, because I don't think Rayo will face a team that creates so many chances. It's incredible that we lost.

"It's a game where you feel superior, you have chances, but you don't score, and a moment arrives when you beging to have doubts. I am worried about our effectiveness in the final third, not about how we're playing.

"Today we created and we played at a good level, but I know that here that doesn't matter. What matters is that we lost 1-0 and it's better to say nothing.

"Normally we have players that can score goals. (Sergio) Aguero has always been a goal scorer, Memphis (Depay) has spent years playing and scoring 15, 20 goals. Maybe from midfield it's (goal scoring) inferior but I can't complain about the team.

"It's true we struggled to get into the game against team that pressed a lot, but we were superior. Seeing the chances we had and they had, the result is not fair, but the result is there and we can't change it."

Koeman did have praise for young midfielder Nico Gonzalez, who did well.

"Nico played really good, he was strong in the midfield, he was in his best offensive way, he had also a big chance to score in the second half," he said.

"He did a great job. He was really tired in the end, but playing at this level in a team that have difficulties is really good."
