Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman was asked about his relationship with Joan Laporta on Saturday and explained that it is cordial, without revealing any further ruptures between the two.

Koeman and Laporta spoke on the flight back from Cadiz but the coach denies his future was a subject they discussed following three winless games.

"Since that day [when I read the statement], nothing has happened," Koeman said. "We spoke on the airplane but about the Cadiz game. That's all, nothing else."

On Laporta he was very respectful and remembered his role in the club: "The president is the most important person at the club. He can talk and give his opinion. I am focused on my job, winning games. Everything else doesn't interest me."  

As for the names coming out in the press as possible replacements, Koeman didn't fall into the trap.

"I can't say much about that," he added. "For a while now, I have not been reading the press much. I know the rumours, but the only thing I can do is focus on winning games. Rumors, names, it's your (the press) job... I put energy into things I can control and do not waste time on things I can't."
