The tulip strategist was not treated very well by the club and its president Joan Laporta, so he wanted to collect the 12 million euros
The Dutch coach, Ronald Koeman, has reached an agreement with FC Barcelona on his dismissal clause. Koeman ended its relationship with the Catalan institution at the end of October, but had a contract until the summer of 2022. This agreement also established that Koeman had to receive 12 million euros should the club decide to terminate your contract.
According to the Spanish press, Barcelona will pay 10 million euros to Koeman, who would have accepted this amount to be available if a team offers him the opportunity to return to the benches.
The culé team did everything possible to convince Koeman that he accepted a smaller amount, but the club’s negotiations with the Dutchman’s representative did not go as well as the board expected.
Koeman was not treated very well by the club and its president Joan Laporta, so he wanted to collect the 12 million euros. Nevertheless, the 58-year-old coach changed his mind and FC Barcelona therefore saved two million euros.
The reason for the change in attitude of Koeman is that you are now completely free of legal issues. If Koeman wants to be a coach elsewhere, the conflict with Barcelona is no longer an obstacle.
The FC Barcelona has now found a new coach in Xavi, who tomorrow will direct his second game in The league against Villarreal.
