Koeman endured a difficult start to life at the Nou Camp, but was hardly helped by the situation surrounding Lionel Messi’s future and Josep Maria Bartomeu’s leadership.

With a new president at the helm, Koeman will probably have wanted assurances over his future, especially considering it’s looking unlikely he’ll deliver either La Liga or the Champions League.

If Todo Fichajes are to be believed, Laporta has informed Koeman that he will be manager of Barcelona come the start of next season, which will no doubt help him sleep at night.
