FilGoal | News | “After a period of thought” .. Laporta: Koeman continues with Barcelona


Barcelona president Joan Laporta has revealed that Ronald Koeman will continue in his position as coach of the team next season.

Doubts were swirling around Koeman’s continuation in his position, before Laporta announced the final position of the Dutch coach.

“After a period of reflection, we agreed to continue the current contract of Koeman,” Laporta said in statements carried by Barcelonas official account via Twitter.

Koeman’s contract with Barcelona expires at the end of next season.

Koeman had coached Barcelona last summer, which made him resign from the Netherlands national team.

The decision to take Koeman in charge came from Jose Maria Bartomeu, the former president of the Catalan club, so there were some doubts about continuing with the new administration headed by Laporta.

Koeman led Barcelona in 54 matches, winning 35, drawing 8 and losing 11.

Barcelona finished third in the Spanish League last season, and was eliminated from the European Champions League from the round of 16 against Paris Saint-Germain.

But Koeman managed to win the King’s Cup.
