Calendar of FC Barcelona

Ronald Koeman could have signed his sentence in the FC Barcelona after the tie against the Raise. The Dutch was horrible in the second part and did not give one with the decisions that took. His reading of party was regrettable, his changes did not have any sense and, in summary, went the most signalled in the duel of the Ciutat of València. A crash in which, besides, the culés lost good part of his options to win this League.

After the goodbye almost definite to the Spanish championship, now is the club the one who will have to decide what do with the Dutch. It gives the feeling that his hours in the bench of the Camp Nou are explained and that will not follow, although Joan Laporta still has not taken any definite decision. Nevertheless, the president barcelonista has a list of candidates to substitute to the of Zaandam in case that it confirm his exit to final of campaign.

Xavi Hernández

The one of Terrassa has renewed with the To the Sadd recently, but has a clause to leave to the Barça if has an offer. It was the favourite of Víctor Font in the elections, although Laporta did not seem to have him between his main candidates. However, the things could have changed and the Catalan would be a serious option to occupy the bank blaugrana. It is a legend, knows the house, loves the style of touch and the philosophy of the club and will try to recover to the best Barça of always. His big but is that hardly it has experience and would be a bet something risky.

Javier García Pepper

The trainer of the filial carries several years doing an exceptional work in the B and has won the right to be one of the candidates to occupy the bench of the first team. It knows the house and to the more better youngsters that anybody and would be ideal so that the Ilaix, Araújo, Mingueza or Ansu keep growing. It does not have name and his nomination would not cause any 'shock' mediático, something that plays in his against, but has conditions and capacity to do it very well with the greater.

Mikel Arteta

The technician of the Arsenal is another of the options that stirred Laporta during the elections. The same that the others alternative mentioned, knows the house of his stage in the quarry and is a lover of the good game. It learnt of Pep Guardiola in the Manchester City and has a future more than interesting. Nevertheless, his campaign as 'gunner' is not being good and can that it was not the best moment for aposar by him.

Erik have Hag

The Dutch is another of the names that have in mind the Managerial Board and the technical office. In the Ajax carries years showing that few trainers achieve to play better to football that he and is of him school of Johan Cruyff. In the Bayern of Munich coincided with Guardiola and has a lot of similarities with Pep. Ámsterdam And Holland remain him small and could be the moment to go to by him, although it seems that it is not the favourite.
