Koeman merits dream Barca job - FDB

Frank De Boer believes his fellow Dutchman and former Barcelona defender Ronald Koeman ‘deserves’ to be the next manager of the Catalan club.

Koeman has been Coach of Everton since his summer move from Southampton but with uncertainty surrounding the future of Luis Enrique beyond this season, the former Ajax and Inter Milan boss believes the former legendary defender is an ideal candidate.

"Normally I think he is [at clubs] for the long term but maybe in his contract if he gets a call from Barcelona then he can go because that is always his dream," De Boer said.

"I think he also mentioned it a lot of times that when Barcelona come calling it would be fantastic. He would deserve it because he is doing well and he also did well with Southampton.

"But hopefully for Everton he doesn't get a call and he will stick there for a couple of years like he did at Southampton."
