Dutch head coach Ronald Koeman will get a handsome pay if he does not sign a new contract with Barcelona. Koeman will profit more if Barcelona don’t extend his contract before the end of the season, than if they do.
Recently, the football news that Ronald Koeman needed to meet Barcelona president Joan Laporta’s certain, set targets emerged from Catalonia.
He had to play some of the younger Barcelona players, some from the La Masia academy, more often this season. This was one of the chief conditions amidst many, most of which had to do with improving the success rate.
Laporta and the Barcelona management made it clear that a renewal deal for him was conditional (football transfer news).
And as such, the Dutch manager has been under intense scrutiny, both during the summer and early in the season.
Despite such pressure, Koeman has confidently claimed that Barcelona’s future football results, that is, their being good, depend on him.
However, Barcelona failed to register a single shot on goal in their opening Champions League football match.
This 3-0 defeat to Bayern Munich (football scores) has forced Koeman to answer questions about his Barcelona future once more.
Koeman Will Profit More If Barcelona Don’t Extend His Contract
The Dutchman, however, still appears unconcerned, which is understandable.
Koeman may wish to remain Barcelona’s manager in the long term. But even if he does leave, he knows he has a handsome reward waiting for him.
According to ESport3, Diario AS claims, there is a clause in Koeman’s contract that protects him in case of severance.
This clause requires Barcelona to pay Koeman €6 million if they don’t extend his coaching contract for another two years.
The clause, according to the report, is a sort of compensation for Koeman having to pay the Dutch football association (KNVB) out of his own pocket to activate his release prior to taking over at Barcelona in August of last year.
