Much was said about what would happen to Ronald Koeman when Josep Maria Bartomeu, the president who signed him, left the club and in the presidential elections a new technical director would take over. A problem that arose even when the arrival of him as a replacement for Quique Setién was rumored.
However, it is clear that the Dutch technical director has done much better with Joan Laporta as president, and that he did not assume even two months ago: he left the Champions League leaving good feelings after 1-4 in the first leg , he lifted his first title with the Copa del Rey and now depends on himself for the Spanish League.
This Saturday, in the press conference prior to this Sunday's match against Villarreal at the Estadio de la Cerámica, Koeman was told precisely about his continuity at the club beyond June. His contractual relationship is until mid-2022 and he has no exit clause.
"As I have said before, the president has always shown me his support and trust from the first day, and until I speak otherwise he continues to say this, then, in principle, I see myself as a coach for next season, and I also have a contract, yes. It is not like that, we will have to talk", he said.
Barcelona comes on a positive streak
After losing El Clásico and in a season where he had also lost the final of the Spanish Super Cup, the Dutchman won the Copa del Rey on Saturday with a resounding defeat and last Thursday he beat Getafe 5-2 by La Liga.
