Talking to Voetbal International, Ronald Koeman was asked whether he ever considered quitting Barcelona.
“That would have been easy, but I put my neck out for this club and I feel responsible for my assistants too,” the Dutchman replied.
“The only way I will quit at this club is when my messages don’t arrive at the players anymore.
“That’s when I will say: ‘Okay, I am done here.’ But this is not the case. Every day that I am on the pitch with my players is a nice day, that’s how I drive to the club.”
If the Catalans sack Koeman, they will have to pay him a compensation of around £13million. The Dutchman resigning on his own would mean that the club gets to keep the money.
