Koeman the frontrunner for Barca Job Ronald Koeman has emerged as the favourite to succeed Quique Setien as Barcelona manager, report Sky Sports. Setien's departure is expected to be confirmed imminently following Barcelona's humiliating 8-2 Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich. Sky report Koeman is president Pep Bartomeu’s preferred choice, despite the fact they'd have to pay compensation to get him out of the Netherlands job. Standard Sport understands Mauricio Pochettino is also another strong candidate.
