Two days after the announcement of the departure of Quique Setién, Barça formalized the appointment for two years of Ronald Koeman.
This time, Ronald Koeman said yes. Six months after declining Barça’s proposal, which was looking for a successor to Ernesto Valverde, the Netherlands coach agreed to commit to the Barcelona club, which he knows well for having played there for six years, notably winning the 1992 Champions League with this famous powerful free kick registered in the final against Sampdoria of Genoa.
As a coach, Koeman has managed Ajax, PSV and Feyenoord, as well as Valencia, where it didn’t go very well despite a Copa del Rey victory. After experiences at Southampton and Everton, Koeman had recovered the keys to the Dutch selection in February 2018 and had done a good job so far. Now he is back in Barcelona, with a huge construction site ahead of him.
“It was an honor to be the coach of the Netherlands, reacted Koeman on the website of the Dutch football federation. For two and a half years, I did everything I could to succeed with the Oranjes “I am proud of what we have done during this period. The Dutch side have a bright future, I am sure of that. Everyone knows Barça is the club of my dreams. It is very special for me d ‘become its trainer. “
