Ronald Koeman spent six years as a player at the Camp Nou and helped the La Liga giants win four La Liga titles and one European Cup.
Netherlands national team head coach has hinted of a possible scenario that could see him managing FC Barcelona after UEFA Euro 2020.
His admission of a possible move to the Catalan giants has come after the sporting director of the Dutch football federation, Nico-Jan Hoogma, revealed in an interview that the Dutch manager has a clause in his contract that would allow teams to hire his services after next summer’s European Championships.
The 56-year-old was part of the Barcelona squad during a six-year spell between 1989 and 1995 when legendary Dutch manager Johan Cruyff was overseeing a footballing revolution at the Camp Nou. Together, the duo helped the Catalan side win four La Liga titles, among other major trophies.
Koeman’s return to Barcelona would be welcomed by the Camp Nou crowd which has grown weary of the way their team plays under manager Ernesto Valverde. The Barcelona faithful accuse the former Valencia manager of taking the team backward from the level achieved under Pep Guardiola and want to see a change of faces in the dug-out.
