Dutch coach on Barcelona’s radar following successful approach in Eredivisie

Barcelona have been linked with an number of managers, and while the latest will not be Xavi Hernandez’s replacement, it does perhaps bode well for them in the future. Many of the current candidates for the position were outside shots when Ronald Koeman was appointed in 2021, and that’s where Arne Slot is currently.

The Feyenoord coach has enjoyed success at de Kuip, and brought the Dutch championship back to Rotterdam last season, while his European record has seen him make a Conference League final, and get into the latter stages of Europa League last season, although they have been thwarted by Roma on all three occasions.

Sport say that while he is not in the running to be the next coach of Barcelona, his work has been appreciated in Catalonia. Slot himself would reportedly be interested in taking the position one day, and shares a belief in possession-based football too.

This is unlikely to be breaking news in the Netherlands. Slot’s work has sparked interest in England and some reports have even put him in contention to replace Thomas Tuchel at Bayern Munich the summer. He will likely be courted by various sides this summer.
