According to journalist Veronica Brunati, Jordi Cruyff is now the leading contender to succeed Ronald Koeman as Barcelona’s head coach.
After a series of poor results, fans and the media alike jumped on Ronald Koeman’s back, with wild rumours about his resignation from the manager’s place.
Jordi Cruyff is unquestionably a long shot in the Barcelona sphere, with a slew of names continuously floating around for the job. Though he has always been associated with Barcelona and a job in the technical department, it has never been a managerial role.
The legendary Johan Cruyff’s son has expressed interest in joining Barcelona under Joan Laporta’s leadership. Negotiations have been hampered by Jordi Cruyff’s prior commitments to Chinese club Shenzhen FC, but there is reason to believe that if he honours his deal with Shenzhen FC, he will join Barcelona.
