Joan Laporta has confimed that Ronald Koeman will remain as Barcelona coach for the 2021-22 season.
According to Mundo Deportivo, the Dutchman fulfilled the deal he made last summer with the Barca board and then-president Josep Maria Bartomeu.
The decision comes after a period of reflection by Laporta on the direction the club was going in.

“After this period of reflection that myself, Ronald Koeman and Rafa Yuste have taken on behalf of the board, I’d like to announce that we’ll continue the current contract that Ronald Koeman has,” Laporta said.
“We’re very satisfied that the conversations we’ve had have been fruitful, and there’s a unified criteria we’ll pursue as to what to do next season as well as what’s happened in the past.”
