The former Ajax, PSV, and Valencia coach is now looking for a job abroad, and according to his agent Guido Albers, Koeman wants to manage Southampton. The Premier League club are looking for a new coach after Mauricio Pochettino joined Tottenham this week.

Albers told the Daily Echo,

“From Ronald’s point of view, it would be amazing. I think it would be a very good success for the club, but also for the Premier League to get a coach like him.

“He is very technical, and very offensive. His team makes goals. They scored more than any other team in Holland this season.”

“We haven’t been approached by anybody, but he would like to work in the Premier League.”

Koeman is currently the favourite to become the new coach at Saint Mary’s with Skybet, ahead of former Basel boss Murat Yakin, and David Moyes.
