PSV boss Koeman with Barca ambitions

He said: “When Joan Laporta won (the presidential election) I received a call from Txiki (Begiristain) who asked me if I had interest in coaching Barca, I responded to him, yes, since my dream is to train someday Barca.

“I had a contract with Ajax and back then it was necessary to pay money to obtain my freedom. Barca did not pay and then I had to decide between leaving for Barcelona or to respect my contract with Ajax.

“They chose Rijkaard and they guessed right, since he has obtained good results.”
