Koeman, new Barcelona coach. If everything follows its usual course, the next coach of Fútbol Club Barcelona will be Ronald Koeman. Negotiations between the Dutchman and the Catalan club are progressing apace. It only remains to hope that the club itself announces the dismissal of Quique Setién and makes Koeman official as Barcelona’s new coach. A priori he will sign for two years.
After the decline in the Champions League, Barça needs profound changes. The humiliating defeat against Bayern Munich by two goals to eight has shown the need for a revulsive in Can Barça. The fans are demanding changes, starting with the coach, continuing with the squad and ending with the club’s leadership. They are not worth patches.
Koeman, new Barcelona coach
Football Club Barcelona needs to shine again. The first decision Bartomeu made after the game last Friday was to dismiss Quique Setién. It is very likely that the decision was already made before the start of the game against the German team. To be sure, the embarrassing result has only accelerated things.
Until a few days ago there were two names that sounded loud to occupy the Can Barça bench, Mauricio Pochettin and Ronald Koeman. However, the rumors that point to the Dutchman as Barcelona’s new coach and the one in charge of starting a new project at Barcelona are getting stronger. A project that returns the illusion to the team and the fans. In fact, television cameras have been able to see the Dutchman upon his arrival in the Catalan capital.
A legend for Barcelona fans
Koeman embodies the figure of savior. The former Blaugrana player is a legend within the club. His free-kick in extra time against Sampdoria allowed Barça to win their first European Cup at Wembley Stadium in 1992. He is also a coach with an extensive career, Ajax, Benfica, PSV Eindhoven, Valencia, Everton, … He currently directs the Dutch team where he has reaped good results. The Dutchman advocates work and commitment, for the seriousness, effort and tenacity of a devastated squad. Koeman’s hand will not shake when it comes to running one of the best clubs in the world.
The removal of Quique Seitén is now a reality. It is likely that the former Blaugrana coach already knows that the club does not have him for next season. The Cantabrian and Eric Abidal, as reported by Betevé, have had lunch together and his dismissal was reported.
