The Dutchman remained bullish on his future and stated that he is not worried about any new president coming in, and that he still had years remaining on his contract.

Koeman told reporters, as per El Mundo Deportivo: “I have not spoken to anyone. We must wait to see who comes in as the president and what his plan is. If I do not see a future for me, we are going to have problems, because I have one more year on my contract.”
