Ronald Koeman had to go to hospital with an anxiety attack, according to FOX Sports. New president Joan Laporta confirmed the coach's situation at a press conference on Friday, but did not clarify that it was due to anxiety.It was said not to be a major issue and came shortly after the latest meeting he held with the president to discuss his future in the club.

Koeman's anxiety hospital visit

According to FOX Sports, Koeman went to the Hospital de Barcelona on Wednesday, after Tuesday afternoon's meeting with the Blaugrana board. The doctors treated him for an anxiety problem and he has since recovered and is now in perfect condition.

"Ronald has a contract and that gives him peace of mind that he should not be rushed into a decision," Laporta said.

"We spoke calmly with him. He had an episode that took him to hospital and he routinely gets checked up. He gave us a scare, especially thinking that a year ago he had a heart attack.

"I told him to take it easy. We spoke with respect. We will sit down with Ronald next week and we will decide after outlining all the aspects."
