Barcelona president Joan Laporta wants to see Andrea Pirlo as Barcelona coach. This was stated by the Catalan journalist from "RAC1", Gerard Romero.

Other names linked with Barcelona include club legend Xavi Hernandez, Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa, former Inter coach Antonio Conte, Ajax coach Eric Ten Haag, former Barça midfielder Philippe Cox ex-coach of Germany, Joachim Lev. But it seems that Pirlo is the best option for the first man of the Catalan team.

Pirlo surprisingly took over Juventus without coaching experience in the summer of 2020.

Under his leadership last season, the Old Lady's nine consecutive Italian titles were cut short and he secured a place in the Champions League at the last minute after Napoli made a mistake at home against Verona on the final day of the championship. Pirlo won two trophies with Juve in the Italian Cup and Super Cup.

The pressure on the current head coach of Barcelona, ​​Ronald Koeman, is increasing after The Catalans barely avoided defeat at home (1: 1) against Granada in the Spanish championship match on Monday night. Last week, Barcelona suffered a heavy defeat of 0: 3 at the "Camp Nou" from Bayern in the Champions League.

Kuman is in a winning position, Barcelona will pay him millions of euros if he fires him or does not extend his contract
