Holland coach, Ronald Koeman has said it is possible for him to coach Barcelona, but it will have to be after Euro 2020.
Director of football at the Dutch Football Association, Nico-Jan Hoogma, said last month that Koeman has a clause in his contract that permits him to head to the Camp Nou after next summer’s European Championship.
Admitting the clause recently, Koeman himself has now said a move to Barca can happen in the future.
His words, “[Joining Barcelona] is a possibility, but only after Euro 2020,” Koeman told a news conference.
“I don’t know if I’ll keep [talking about the Barcelona job] in the future because it’s a bit strange to speak about the possibility of going to the club while you’re the Netherlands coach.”
Koeman’s managerial career to date has taken in spells at the likes of Ajax, Benfica, Valencia, PSV and Everton, before he signed a four-and-a-half year contract to become Netherlands coach in February 2018.
