"Going to Barça is a possibility... after the Euro"

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 6,602

Ronald Koeman, who is currently preparing the Netherland's next Euro qualifiers, confirmed that he has considered coaching Barcelona.

The rumours surrounding a possible change of coach in Barcelona have been a frequent feature almost since Ernesto Valverde first joined the team. 

In the last couple of weeks, Ronald Koeman has been said to be the man who will be taking the reigns at Barcelona once Valverde leaves - or is sacked - after irregular form and results from the Catalans. 

The current Dutch coach, far from silencing the rumours, has admitted that there is a possibility he could be going to the Spanish city, but with a nuance.

"It's a possibility, but only after the Euros," the coach confirmed at a press conference with the honesty that usually characterises him.

"There is no other club for which I could leave the 'Oranje' other than Barça," added the Dutchman, who has a liberation clause as part of his contract with the Dutch.

Meanwhile, Valverde's position is continiously challenged, and as Barça reports, he is not safe from getting sacked. Although he has a contract, both the club and the technician would be willing to finish it next summer.

The Dutchman is the best positioned to reach the dressing room, but will have competition through Marcelo Gallardo, who has won some fans in recent days.
