Ronald Koeman left FC Barcelona to make way for Xavi, even agreeing to make a significant effort.
He had to be the manager capable of relaunching FC Barcelona and bring it closer to its roots. In the end, Ronald Koeman did not last long and was dismissed from his post last October. Logically, this was not done for free, as RAC1 recently announced that Barça would have paid € 10m to Koeman, whose contract runs until next June. A fairly large sum, especially for a club which is going through the worst crisis in its history and which is forced to count its pennies.
Barça should have paid Koeman € 12m, but …
FC Barcelona could have paid more, however! According to information from Il Corriere dello Sport, the Catalan club should have paid € 12m to sack Ronald Koeman , in accordance with a clause in his contract. The Italian daily reveals that it was the Dutchman himself who allegedly proposed the sum of € 10m, aware of the big problems facing the club, which he also wore as a player.
