Barcelona have announced the appointment of Ronald Koeman as their new first team coach until 30 June 2022.
The 57-year-old Dutchman replaces Quique Setien, who was sacked following Barca’s humiliating 8-2 defeat to Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
Koeman, who spent six years as a player at Barcelona and was a member of Johan Cruff’s legendary ‘Dream Team’, leaves his role as manager of the Netherlands, which he had held since 2018.
His presentation and first press conference will take place this evening.
Not long before the announcement, Barcelona confirmed that Ramon Planes would be their new technical director.
