Guardiola is happy to stay on Koeman and praises ‘spectacular purchase’

Pep Guardiola is pleased that Ronald Koeman is staying at FC Barcelona. He foresees a better second season than the first. It was long unclear whether Koeman could stay on as head coach of Barcelona.
Last week Koeman was given the green light from President Joan Laporta, and Guardiola is pleased about that. โ€œIts good news that Koeman continues at Barcelona,โ€ quotes the Spanish newspaper AS Guardiola. โ€œIn many moments he has played the best football in Spain and the second season is often better. Koeman is the ideal trainer and Laporta is convinced that Ronald deserves an extra year, with people in the stadium.โ€
Sergio Agรผero and Eric Garcia have already been announced as reinforcements, while Barcelona is also working on Memphis Depay. โ€œTwo great purchases,โ€ says Guardiola about the former. โ€œI already told Koeman that Eric is a spectacular purchase, he will be one of the captains in the next few years. The next season will be very different, also because there are people in the stadiums.โ€
