Koeman tipped to replace Setien at Barca

Barcelona manager Quique Setien is to be sacked today  and Netherlands coach Ronald Koeman could reportedly be the man to replace him.

La Liga runners-up Barcelona were humiliated in an 8-2 loss to Bayern Munich as they crashed out of the Champions League at the quarter-final stage on Friday.

Spanish football expert Guillem Balague said  former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has “been approached”, but ex-Barca player Koeman would be a more popular choice.

“The board will meet tomorrow and [Setien] will be sacked,” Balague told the BBC 5 Live Euro Leagues podcast. “They have to choose a manager because in two weeks’ time pre-season starts – and the talk is Koeman could be the man.”

Meanwhile, Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu is planning a massive overhaul of the Catalan club’s and reportedly wants to totally refresh Barca’s ageing squad and has put every senior player in the team up for sale bar four: Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Clement Lenglet, Frankie De Jong and Lionel Messi.
