Quique Setien’s future at Barcelona remains the source of much speculation with a report on Sunday claiming the players want Patrick Kluivert to replace the 61-year-old as boss.
Kluivert is talked up in the report which notes his 122 goals in 256 games for Barca, his experience playing in different countries and his ability to speak six languages.
The players think he has the character to shake up the dressing room, to bring the “intensity” Lionel Messi said they were lacking and to bring through the club’s youth.
MD also reckon that Kluivert can bring out the best in compatriot Frenkie de Jong, and is even described as potentially being Barca’s ‘Zidane.’
It’s not clear if Barca will change managers again this summer. Quique Setien met with Josep Maria Bartomeu for talks on Friday with reports staying he’ll stay for now.
