Barcelona manager, Ronald Koeman, has said it was “crazy” to suggest he should consider his future, following a 4-1 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Lionel Messi gave the LaLiga giants the lead from the penalty spot.

But PSG responded emphatically with a Kylian Mbappe hat-trick and a Moise Kean header, to take a big advantage into next month’s second leg.

The loss leaves Barca on the cusp of a second successive trophyless season.

They are also eight points behind LaLiga leaders Atletico Madrid having played a game more and lost the first leg of their Copa del Rey semifinal 2-0 against Sevilla last week.

“If I was someone who gets happy when we win and then after a result like today said I had no desire to continue, that would be crazy.

“I know where I am and what we have to change. We’re trying. We’re not at the end of the path yet, we’re halfway down it,” Koeman said in a news conference when asked if the manner of the defeat would force him to consider stepping down.
