Ronald Koeman's car was targeted by furious Barcelona fans after Sunday's 2-1 El Clasico defeat to Real Madrid.
David Alaba scored a stunning strike to put Los Blancos ahead in front of 86,000 fans at the Nou Camp, before Lucas Vazquez doubled Los Blancos' lead in the third minute of stoppage time.
Sergio Aguero notched from close range in the 97th minute but it was nothing more than a consolation for Barca, who are ninth in La Liga after the same amount of games.
Manager Koeman is under huge pressure and in footage posted online, the Dutchman was met by a large group of angry Barca supporters after the game.
He was driving away from the stadium when the fans confronted his vehicle, with some banging on the bonnet of the Audi and insulting him while he was driving.
Fans were calling for Koeman's head following a record-equalling third El Clasico defeat in a row, though many online condemned the behaviour.

Nobody should be subjected to this. It is appalling behaviour.— Colin Millar (@Millar_Colin) October 24, 2021
Anyone who behaves like this does not have the emotional capacity to follow the fortunes of a football club. https://t.co/3ZNEkJkCtR
Barcelona also issued a statement on the treatment Koeman received, writing: “FC Barcelona publicly condemns the violent and disdainful acts that our manager experienced when leaving the Camp Nou.
“The club will take security and disciplinary measures so that such unfortunate events do not happen again.”
Barcelona had returned to winning ways in recent times with victories over Valencia and Dinamo Zagreb but were back to losing again in a game that Koeman felt was finely balanced.
"I am disappointed with the result but the team tried until the last second," he said post-match, as per The Mirror.
We didn't create many clear opportunities. It was an even match but in the end the small details proved key.
"It is difficult to find positives from losing at home to Madrid, but I liked the attitude of the players and the fans.
"There is another game on Wednesday, the season is very long so we will keep fighting."
Barcelona play Rayo Vallecano next in midweek, before hosting Alaves on Saturday 30 October.
