Tue 01 June 2021 | 8:25

The Barcelona president is positive about the Dutch coach’s future at the Spanish club.

Ronald Koeman

has been under pressure for his side’s performance in their final games of the season.

Barcelona

finished their 2020-21 campaign in third place on the La Liga table with 79 points from their 38 matches. Koeman is under contract at Camp Nou until the end of the 2021-22 season, but his future at the Spanish club is reportedly unclear. Despite recent rumors about Koeman’s potential departure from Barcelona,

Juan Laporta

admits the negotiations with the Dutchman are progressing well.

“I said we opened a period of reflection by Koeman”

, Laporta told

Marca

.

“We must evaluate what went well and what did not in the last season.

“We need this quiet period and within a week or ten days we will meet again, but there is contact.

“The will is to respect the contract and we still have to talk about. The talks are going very well, but a period of reflection was necessary.”

Laporta’s biggest challenge in the summer will be

Lionel Messi

’s potential contract extension. The super star’s future will not be decided until July as he is preparing to participate in Copa America with Argentina.
