Koeman would love to work with Barca in the future

Barcelona legend Ronald Koeman hopes that one day he will be able to take over the managerial reins in Barcelona. ​​He admits that the timing of the opportunity to return to Camp Nou was not right up to this point. The Dutchman is still in the closest attention from his playing days in Catalonia. The reunion with Blaugrana has been around for some time but has never been done. Ronald again approached when in January Barca decided to part with Ernesto Valverde.

In his contract with Oranje, there is a clause on the break that will allow him to associate himself with Barca, but this can only be provoked after the end of the European Championship campaign. Given that UEFA pushed 2020 Euro-12, the Ronald will not go anywhere in the foreseeable future. He eagerly points out that he did not throw out any other reasons from the League of giants, while he still intends at some stage to return to his familiar environment. “I don’t think it was a bad time,” Ronald added about Barcelona’s recent attempts to provide his services. “What happened is that I have my motives with the Netherlands.

Barcelona have outstanding players

“Barcelona can always win big things, and they have outstanding players, they have options to sign the best players… If I were without work, then, of course, everyone likes Barcelona.” No matter what situation they are in. I had the best spell as a player there at Barcelona, ​​and I have a lot of love for the city. So, let’s hope that one day I will be able to train Barcelona.

Questions are already being asked about its suitability for the most demanding of the posts, while there are obvious questions that need to be addressed by the current champions of Spain. Koeman said when asked to give his take on the Blaugrana in 2019-20: “This amount of ownership is not relevant if you create only two or three chances.

Playing against Napoli away is very difficult

“Playing against Napoli away from home in the Champions League is difficult because they got a lot of people for the ball, and it’s hard to open them and create chances. The team needs, first of all, a fast player.” Look at the number of problems Vinicius Jr. caused Barcelona against Real Madrid. At the moment, they don’t have much depth, and they need someone with the right touch. “In the middle of the field, they have players with the same type of characteristics. I saw how Ansu Fati did very well because of his pace, and they need a player like him because the rest are playing to get the ball.”


Barca is located on the top of La Liga after seeing during the outbreak of coronavirus competitive football was closed. At the same time, they also remain in an argument for a place in the quarterfinals of the Champions League.
