"That may be performed in personal. I like while a president is engaged and asks questions, simplest that ought to not take place in the press. That changed into the hassle.
"I'm open to staying. I'm just having an awesome time. Thanks to me, this club has a future."
While lovers have not always supported Koeman for his man-management and fashion of play, the cause he's taking the credit for Barcelona's future is his willingness to place religion in young gamers and his attempts to carry the La Masia academy lower back to relevancy.
The likes of Ronald Araujo, Oscar Mingueza, Sergino Dest and Gavi have all shone under Koeman, but his greatest achievement tale has been the rise of 18-year-old midfielder Pedri, who's already a everlasting fixture within the crew for both club and country.
