Former Barcelona Striker Henrik Larsson to Assist Ronald Koeman
Larsson, who played for Barcelona between 2004-06, returns to Nou Camp as Koeman’s assistant.
Barcelona have appointed former player Henrik Larsson as part of Ronald Koeman’s backroom staff.
The 48-year-old former striker, who played alongside Koeman at Feyenoord, has been out of the game for a year after leaving his managerial post at Swedish side Helsingborgs due to social media abuse.
Larsson has signed a two-year deal to work as an assistant coach to Koeman, who left his role as Netherlands boss to replaced the sacked Quique Setien on Wednesday.
Former FC Twente and Hoffenheim head coach Alfred Schreuder, who also worked as an assistant to Erik ten Hag at Ajax during their run to the Champions League semi-finals, will also join Koeman’s staff at the Nou Camp.
