The duo join the Dutchman at the club as the Catalan giants continue to make changes in the wake of the Champions League defeat to Bayern.
Here’s the club’s official statement:
“FC Barcelona have reached an agreement with Alfred Schreuder and Henrik Larsson for their incorporation into into the coaching staff, headed by new coach Ronald Koeman. Both have signed on contracts through to June 30, 2022.”
Larsson needs little introduction and will be warmly welcomed back by fans after 13 years away from the club. The striker scored 22 goals in 62 games for Barca, winning La Liga twice and the Champions League.
Meanwhile, Schreuder is expected to be Koeman’s assistant coach. The 47-year-old has previously worked at FC Twente and Hoffenheim and was also part of Erik ten Hag’s coaching staff at Ajax for their memorable Champions League campaign in 2019.
