Ronald Koeman might be under intense pressure to turn a very average Barcelona team to a world class team but, the manager isn’t too worried about the future and what it has in store for him.
Thanks to former Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu who ensured he will leave Barcelona one way or the other a millionaire.
According to El Club de la Mitjanit, a clause in Koeman’s contract guarantees him a £14m compensation should Barcelona decide to sack him before his contract expires.
Secondly, if Barcelona do not extend his contract his contract that ends next summer, the club will still pay him £6m which is the same amount paid to the Royal Dutch Football Association to terminate his contract in order to join Barcelona.
The only way Barcelona can avoid paying him millionaires is to ensure his next contract extension doesn’t carry similar clauses.
