Four Former Barca Stars Who Could Manage The Club

We all know FC Barcelona manager Luis Enrique will be leaving the club at the end of the season, and with plenty of speculation going around as to who the team's new manager will be, we thought we would look at four former players who could do the job.

Frank de Boer

The former Ajax Amsterdam manager played for the club between 1999 and 2003, and had a successful career during his time at the Blaugrana. The defender sadly had a torrid time in his last job in Serie A – he was sacked just three months into his tenure as Inter Milan coach. De Boer knows what Barcelona are all about, though, and with Luis Suarez, Neymar and Lionel Messi at his disposal, surely he can't go wrong?

Giovanni van Bronckhorst

The legendary Dutch fullback had a good stint at the Catalan giants and played under a fellow Dutchman Frank Rijkaard at the club. In his four seasons at the Camp Nou, Van Bronckhorst won two La Liga titles and one Champions League crown. He is currently seen as one of the up and coming managers in Europe, and is coaching Feyenoord.

Ronald Koeman

Koeman is one of the favourites for the job next season, but we're not so sure he will jump at it. The former Barca captain has taken the Premier League by storm recently, having successful managerial spells at Southampton and now at Everton. If the club wants its old values back, then Koeman might be the man for the job.

Carles Puyol

If there is one former captain who is absolutely loved by the club's supporters, it's Carles Puyol. The central defender was seen as one of the best players of his generation, and was one of the few footballers who played for only one team in his entire career. He may have not managed much in his life, but he knows how to lead people to glory!

Which former player would you give the job to?
