Barcelona presidential candidate Jordi Farre claims to have spoken to Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp about the possibility of coming to the Camp Nou to coach the team.

The Catalan giants have just sacked Quique Setien and brought in Ronald Koeman, on a two-year deal, and Farre says he is hopeful the Dutchman will work out.

However, if Koeman doesn’t turn out to be the right man for the job then it seems Farre already knows who he wants in the Camp Nou hotseat.

“If Koeman works and does well, he would be, of course [Farre’s choice to be manager]. Obviously, we have our roadmap and we had already started several conversations with Jurgen Klopp, because it seems to us that Barca need such a coach.”

Klopp took charge of Liverpool in 2015 and has won the Champions League and the Premier League with the Reds. His contract runs until 2024 and he has said recently he plans to take a year off when his time at Anfield is up.
