From Barcelona, according to ESPN Digital, for the moment the continuity of Ernesto Valverde is not in question, and in any case if that happened in the future, Ronald Koeman, who directs the selection of Holland and has a clause to go to Barça in 2020, would be the main candidate to reach office.
RIVER IS DENIED
Meanwhile, River Plate's sports director, Enzo Francescoli, in a ‘TYC Sports’ interview, dismissed Borghi's assertions.
“I know what everyone is reading, I'm glad for the size of the club and then there's nothing true.
