Barca's 5-man list to replace Koeman?


Ronald Koeman is reportedly on the verge of being sacked, with FC Barcelona having seemingly drawn up a list of five managers who could replace the Dutchman at the club.  

The Catalan giants continued their stuttering form, and the pressure continued to pile on the head coach, as the Blaugrana recorded a 1-1 draw with Granada in their LaLiga clash on Monday night, with young defender Ronald Araujo scoring a late header to spare Koeman's blushes at the Camp Nou.

Immediately after the tie, Spanish journalist Josep Soldado Gomez reported that Barcelona president Joan Laporta wants to dismiss Koeman after seeing "two distant versions" of the side that he wants in a few days, with the reporter adding that it is only a matter of time before his sacking as Laporta starts his search for a replacement.

Another Barcelona-based journalist, Gerard Romero, later went on to streaming service Twitch to reveal a list of five managers he claims the club is considering as they look to part ways with the former Everton head coach.  

Former Blaugrana captain Xavi Hernandez was mentioned among the candidates, with ex-Juventus boss Andrea Pirlo also reportedly being considered. 

Although there are various names in the mix, Romero emphasised that the club's hierarchy is yet to reach an agreement on the next man for the job – scroll through the gallery above to see all five tacticians who could replace Koeman at the Camp Nou.
