Ronald Koeman fulfilled a dream this summer when it signed his agreement with the FC Barcelona. The Dutch, that happened to the history of the club with his golazo in the first Champions League of the Barça, returned at last to which went his house to face a new sportive project. The Dutch had to leave his place in the selection of Holland to accept this challenge, but never doubted when it presented him this opportunity.

The one of Zaandam has recognised these last years that direct to the group barcelonista was one of his aims, but what perhaps anybody knew was that 15 years ago already had this very in mind. 'Sportive world' has published his memories when it went of the Barcelona in 1995 and in them speaks precisely on this. The ex defender already questioned then what did fault to be trainer of the Barça.

Koeman Worked with Johan Cruyff during six years in the City Condal and one in the Ajax, by what learnt a lot on his method of work and his ideas. By this reason, the ex míster of Valencia or of Southampton ensured in his day that to train to the culés would do fault somebody of his character. "To be trainer of the Barça is precise somebody with a lot of character, like Cruyff. The truth is that he gets along it yet still never are missing the problems", commented.

The Dutch also asked if he could do it and always had clear that yes, although it recognised that it would not move to the letter the learnt with Cruyff. Ronald always had clear his ideas and at the end has been able to carry them out. "I ask me if I will be able to assume some day the direction of the Barça. I think so, with preparation and experience. I will apply the educations of Johan in many respects. In the futbolístico, sometimes disagree. To me it likes me play with extremes and with three or four defences", explained in his memories.

Koeman Already knew which trainer wanted to be

To the current technician of the Barcelona never has liked him the 4-3-3 with which played Johan and along his career has used especially the 4-2-3-1. Besides, it left clear that like míster always would risk and would try not being rigid and do every night what asks the meeting. "If in the development of a party have to change, change, because in definite the result is the one who commands. Here in the Barça have assumed too many risks in quite a lot of parties. A trainer has to look for and find the break-even point", signalled.

Finally, it admitted that his idea would be to be a trainer something more comedido that Cruyff of doors for out. The mythical '14' did not be to have pelos in the tongue and if it had to 'rajar' in press conference, did it, something that Koeman wanted to avoid if some day seated in the bench of the Barça. "Like technician is very hard and demanding to the maximum with his players. Often, it pours critical comments on his own players through the press. It is free to do it, but I prefer that this type of things do inside the changing room", finalised.
