The coach of Barça, Ronald Koeman, is increasingly threatened. According to the Spanish press, Barça managers are working behind the scenes to find his replacement and one of the tracks studied internally would lead to Thierry Henry.
Barça Transfer Window: Thierry Henry as an alternative to replace Koeman ?
Ronald Koeman perhaps lives his last days on the bench of FC Barcelona. The humiliation suffered against Bayern Munich (3-0) in the Champions League and the sad draw conceded at home against Granada have seriously weakened the situation of the Dutch coach in Catalonia. It is now difficult to see Ronald Koeman go to the end of his contract expiring in June 2022 with Barça.
The Spanish press also assures that the management of FC Barcelona is already working on his succession. To replace it, Xavi Hernandez’s name returns to the top of the list. Except that the former Barça captain is not the only name studied internally. According to the information of Mundo Deportivo, the Catalan leaders are turning to other alternative solutions and one of them would lead to a certain Thierry Henry.
This is not the first time that the French coach is cited in the Catalan capital. The current deputy of Roberto Martinez in Belgium selection has already been probed in the past to take the reins of the Barça first team. And it would still be today according to the Spanish media. The consultant of Premium Video would therefore be an alternative more than a real priority for the leaders of FC Barcelona.
Other profiles under consideration to replace Koeman
Other coaches are also announced in the crosshairs of FC Barcelona. The names of Erik ten Hag (Ajax Amsterdam), Roberto Martinez (Belgium) or Pep Guardiola (Manchester City) are also quoted by the Spanish press. Still at FC Barcelona, Ronald Koeman sees many coaches waiting in the waiting room to take over.
