Former Barcelona striker Thierry Henry has become another contender to replace Ronald Koeman at the helm of the Catalan club. So, among other football transfer news, Thierry Henry could replace Ronald Koeman, in case he resigns from the coaching post.
Barcelona, in particular Barca president Joan Laporta, set specific targets that head coach Ronald Koeman would need to meet.
Only upon meeting these conditions would Koeman even possibly get a contract extension offer from Barcelona.
Barcelona management, instead of waiting for Koeman to fulfill their conditions to renew his contract, are already looking at alternatives.
First came the football news of Andrea Pirlo, the former Juventus coach and coaching career newbie, replacing Koeman at Barcelona.
Then, transfer rumours hinted that, for Laporta, current Belgium national team coach Roberto Martinez, and not Pirlo, was the favorite.

Now, according to some club sources, the ideal candidate to replace Koeman as manager would be a former player.
Barcelona will prefer a former Barcelona faitful, who knows the club well, like Thierry Henry or Xavi, claims Mundo Deportivo.
Previously, reports said that the Frenchman could possibly join the coaching staff at the Catalan club. This might be the case if Roberto Martinez agrees to take charge as the new head coach of the Blaugrana.
