Barca make big Koeman announcement

LaLiga

FC Barcelona president Joan Laporte has confirmed that Ronald Koeman will retain his position as the club's manager for next season.

Koeman's future at the Nou Camp has come into question in recent weeks after Barcelona failed to win the LaLiga and UEFA Champions League titles during his debut season in charge of the club.

However, Barca president Laporta has confirmed that the Dutchman, who is contracted to the club until the end of the 2022/23 campaign, will remain in charge of the Catalan giants next season.

"After this period of reflection, vice-president Rafael Yuste and myself have agreed that we will continue with the current contract that Ronald Koeman has," Laporte said ahead of a meeting with the Board of Directors, per Barca's official website.

"...We see the coach very motivated and he already has a year of experience in this dressing room, which we will try to make more competitive. I think Koeman comes out on top because he is the coach we want."

Laporta also revealed that Barcelona would be making more signings in the coming weeks, with the club having already acquired the services of Sergio Aguero, Eric Garcia and Emerson Royal.

"I hope to be able to announce some additions next week," the 58-year-old shared, amid speculation linking Barca with Liverpool's Georginio Wijnaldum and Olympique Lyonnais forward Memphis Depay.
