Barcelona on Wednesday confirmed the arrival of Dutchman Ronald Koeman as their new permanent head coach on a contract set to run until 2022, following the sack of Quique Setien.
The club made the announcement in an official club statement available on Twitter.
The 57-year-old replaces Setien, who was sacked following Barcelona’s humiliating 8-2 defeat to Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals of the Champions League and is expected to be the first of many drastic changes at the club.
Koeman represented Barcelona from 1989 to 1995 as a player, winning 10 trophies along the way, including four LaLiga titles and the UEFA Champions League
Meanwhile, Koeman told the Dutch FA that it is an honour to be the national coach of the Netherlands.
