Joan Laporta has backed Koeman to continue with his role

Barcelona would continue with Ronald Koeman’s service in the upcoming season.

The 58-year old led the Catalan giants to Copa del Rey glory this season.

According to various media reports, Ronald Koeman was said to be hospitalised due to an anxiety attack following the end of the La Liga season.

Laporta said: “Due to the admiration we have for Koeman and the respect we have for him as a professional, we said that at the end of the season we would evaluate him.

“We had a meeting and now we have set a date for next week to finalise the decision. He has one more year on his contract.

“I want the understanding and acceptance of everyone involved in this project. I can tell Ronald what I think and vice versa; he can tell me, always with respect.

“I have told him what I had to tell him: that we are evaluating and analysing the season.

“We have a clear and direct relationship. He is a coach who was already there, he has one more year.”
