According to Spanish TV programme ‘Jugones’ Barcelona have two Dutchmen at the top of their wishlist should they sack Ernesto Valverde.

After their Champions League exit in midweek, there have been several reports that Barcelona could say goodbye to Valverde, who is still contracted at the club until 2020.

Jugones, who broke news of Zinedine Zidane’s return to Real Madrid earlier this season, are now reporting that Barcelona’s two main candidates to replace Valverde are Ronald Koeman and Erik ten Hag.

Netherlands boss Koeman is the first choice due to his past with the Catalan giants, but he seems unlikely to depart his job with Oranje, who have only just begun their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign.

Ten Hag is second choice, having put his name in lights with Ajax’s Champions League run.
