    Your choices for valverde replacement

    Many of the forum members will probably wonder why "me", who have been one of the biggest supporters of Valverde, is now opening this thread.
    Well, one way or another, the end of his Barcelona career is approaching its end, so it will be interesting to discuss who do you think would be the right replacement. I will start this thread with a very possible candidate, whom many of you would love to see back at Camp Nou. His name is RONALD KOEMAN.Click image for larger version.

    Here is his coaching career record:


    2001 - 2004 (Ajax Amsterdam)

    In 2001/02 R.Koeman won domestic double and even though he won another title in 2003/04, Ajax was kicked out of the UEFA Cup by Auxerre (3:2).
    On the following day, Feb. 25/2015, Koeman resigned.

    2005 - 2006 (Benfica Lisabon)

    In Feb. 2005, he took the vacant head coaching position at the Portuguese champion Benfica and won only the Potuguese Super Cup, finishing in 3 rd place. This suffered
    for the manager to leave, one year before the end of his contract.

    2006 - 2007 PSV Eindhoven)

    He served as head coach of PSV and won the title in the very last game of the season, just 1 point ahead of Ajax.

    2007 - 2008 (Valencia)

    On Oct. 31/2007 he agreed to be the new coach of Valencia. With that team he won Copa del Rey. The reminder of his tenure at Valencia would prove disappointing. The
    team slumped to 15 th place in the league, only 2 points above the relegation zone. He was sucked on Apr. 21, 2008.

    2009 - 2010 ( AZ Alkmaar)

    Koeman was appointed manager of AZ Alkmaar on May 18, 2009. On Dec. 05, 2009, AZ announced he is no longer in charge, after losing 7 of the first 16 games.

    2011 - 2014 (Feyenoord Rotterdam)

    On July 21, 2011 he became a manager of the Dutch club Feyenoord, but after three trophy-less seasons, Koeman left the team at the end of 2013 - 14 season.

    2014 - 2015 (Southampton - England)

    In June 2014, Koeman was announced as the replacement for Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino, signing 3 year contract. His older brother Erwin was appointed
    as his assistant. He finished the season on the seventh place. Next year, Southampton finished on the sixth place and got to the group stage of the UEFA Europa League.
    After early exit of the tournament, he has resigned.

    2016 - 2017 (Everton - England)

    On June 14, 2016, Koeman was confirmed as a manager of Everton, signing 3 year contract, with his brother as his assistant again. He led the team to qualification for
    the Europa League. Prior to 2017-18 season, Koeman was given the largest ever budget in Everton's history, 150 million pounds to spend on new players. After another
    disappointing season, he was sucked by the club on Oct 23, 2017, after his side fell into the relegation zone.

    2018 - now (Netherlands national team)

    On Feb.06/2018 Koeman was appointed as manager of the Netherlands national team on a four and a half year contract, up to and including the 2022 World Cup.
    He has a release clause to Barcelona in the summer of 2020, which apply only to the Catalan team.

    17 years coaching career with 8 different teams !!!
    3 national titles ( Ajax - 2, PSV - 1 )
    1 Copa del Rey (Valencia)
    1 Portuguese Super Cup (Benfica)
