Ronald Koeman is on the brink of being sacked by Barcelona. Joan Laporta is done with the Dutchman and is already looking for a replacement.
One of the names in the shortlist is Andrea Pirlo. The former Juventus coach is one of the president’s favorites to replace Ronald Koeman.
According to ‘TMW’ journalist, Giacomo Lacobellis, Barcelona has already made its first move. The Catalonia giants is already in talks with the Italian coach.
Pirlo, without a job after being sacked by Juventus, is open to accept the job as Koeman’s replacement. In fact, he already let Barcelona know he is available for the job.
Andrea Pirlo would still have to terminate his Juventus contract, as he is still on the payroll, but there shouldn’t be any problems.
In any case, according to Giacomo Lacobelis, Andrea Pirlo is just another name on the shortlist, nothing decided yet. The board’s favorite would be Xavi, Al Sadd’s coach.
