Ronald Koeman Spotted Laughing At Full-Time After Barcelona Humiliation

Barcelona fans are fuming at Ronald Koeman breaking into laughter at full-time after their 4-1 Champions League humiliation against Paris Saint-Germain.

The Barca boss was greeting PSG's Idrissa Gueye - who he managed at Everton - and appeared overflowing with smiles and mirth as he hugged the midfielder, then chucked him playfully on the chin.

Nobody is saying a face like thunder would have changed the full-time score at the Camp Nou. But perhaps a little less visible cheery joy might have gone down better with several Barcelona fans.

The last-16 first-leg match was pretty much a nightmare for the Dutch coach. Lionel Messi's penalty put Barcelona into a 1-0 lead, but Kylian Mbappe equalised five minutes later, before Gerard Pique and Antoine Griezmann had an expletive-filled on-pitch row.

The second half was one-way traffic as a rampant Mbappe completed his hat-trick with Moise Kean chipping in with the other goal for the visitors.

It was yet another Champions League embarrassment for Barcelona after they lost 8-2 on aggregate to Bayern Munich last season, and blew a 3-0 first leg lead against Liverpool the year before that.

Still, at least Koeman saw the funny side.

So we're sure it's all smiles and laughter across the Catalan city this morning. Probably.
