Media are ruthless in most major football countries though. What major teams are there in Europe where the media isn't ruthless if you don't do well? There's no such thing as a stress free managerial job at a top team in Europe but I'd imagine Barca internally is a much better culture to work in than somewhere like Madrid or Chelsea. External factors will always drive top managers to the brink of insanity with stress but that's just the culture we live in right now.
there is no such thing as an easy life managing barcelona. catalan media is absolutely ruthless. the pressure he was under to perform was massive. just look at the transformation of his body under stress from when he started to when he left.
