The Koeman connection

Ronald-Koeman-2Ronald Koeman has been ruled out as a replacement for Slaven Bilic.

The Dutchman has been mentioned regularly as a possible caretaker boss but his Sgt Major reputation and “patchy” record in Holland is working against him.

There were many stories that his departure at Everton was as a result of serious tensions between him and the squad and the view inside the London Stadium is that such a move could be a ‘frying pan to fire’ situation .

He is one of the very few available managers at the moment but his record shows that he tends to be a club hopper, apart from a three year stay at Feyenoord between 2011-2014.

The former Barcelona assistant left Benfica a year before his contract was up to join PSV before being sacked from Valencia and moving on to short stays at AC, then Feyenoord, Southampton and Everton where of course he was sacked again.

Some may argue that a tough guy is required in the Irons dressing room right now but it is not a gamble the club are ready to take at this stage.

  1. Figured that he will take Holland Job.
    Tho I wouldn’t want him long term we do need someone who is heavy on training tho this season he played players out of position we dont need that mainly bc got to many #1.
    Slav will prob be around till Jan at least. Slim chance he could go after Liverpool but he has denied the bookies odds..

  2. He should of gone weeks ago ..we are asking for trouble ..he will take us down .

  3. Koeman is a busted flush, you hear he’s very ambitious and confident in his own ability, but what seems to be the case is that he’s lost the Dressing Rooms at both Southampton and Everton by being arrogant and out of touch.

    Sounds perfect for West Ham – go and get him!

  4. Ronald Koeman ? I’d take Ronald McDonald to replace this clown we currently have!!!!
