Ronaldo Koeman's time at Barcelona feels like it's speeding towards a very inevitable end, after the club lost to Atletico Madrid at the weekend.
It's not been a good start to the season for Koeman, and he was already under increasing pressure following the 3-0 loss to Benfica in the Champions League last week.
The team followed that loss up with another to Atleti in La Liga on Saturday night, in which former striker Luis Suarez was amongst the goalscorers.
Many felt the Uruguay striker's celebration was directly aimed at Koeman, who pundits believe isn't good enough for the job at hand for the Catalan side.
The Dutchman obviously doesn't think he could do any better though, with TV channel La Porteria reporting what the manager told club president Joan Laporta.
"With these footballers it is what there is," the former Everton boss is reported to have claimed, "You can not demand more of me either."
Koeman's insinuation is that with the group of players he's got at his disposal he shouldn't be expected to do any better than he's currently doing.
It's not the first time the 58-year-old has taken a shot at the players recently, with youngster Nico Gonzalez in the crosshairs after the Atleti loss.
Centre back, and one of four club captains, Gerard Pique also criticised his fellow teammates in the wake of their first league loss of the season.
However Koeman certainly can't escape criticism and one fan put together an incredible, not in a good way, thread of all the bad records he's broken.
Amongst those is the first time that the club have ever lost back-to-back Champions League group games, after they followed up their defeat to Bayern Munich with the one to Benfica.
After that second match it was claimed the team were in 'chaos,' with the manager changing tactics at the last minute before kick off.
Along with the report about what Koeman told Laporta, it has also been claimed that several managers have told the president that they aren't available to take the job right now.
The president, who took over at the beginning of 2020 after the former chief left prematurely, is reportedly a big fan of Thomas Tuchel, although that seems like a pipe dream right now.
