The search for a substitute for Ernesto Valverde made FC Barcelona open a casting that won the unexpected Quique Setién. It was not, by far, the first option of the Blaugrana sports management.
One of the coaches who tried was a legend in Barcelona, since he gave the goal of the first European Cup of the five that the club has in its showcases: Ronald Koeman.
He confessed himself after the UEFA Nations League draw: “They called me weeks ago. I said no to Barcelona because I was with the national team and I have a commitment to continue. It was not the time, “he confessed.
Koeman has been a constant in the Barça rumorology, but has not finished curdling his signing. However, it does not lose sight of the opportunity and it is not ruled out that, after Euro 2020, it will be done with the culé bench If Setién does not continue.
In the same appearance, Koeman referred to the adaptation of one of his players in the ‘oranje’, Jong Frenkie. “The positive is that he plays many games, but play in a different position to which he is accustomed. Neither in the Ajax before nor now in the selection plays in that position, but they are decisions of the coach, “he left on the air.” With me he plays differently, “he said, in a veiled criticism of how Setién is using him.
