Everton fans have laughed at suggestions that former manager Ronald Koeman could become the new Barcelona boss.
The Catalan giants are joint-top of La Liga alongside Real Madrid, but have lost three games and conceded 15 goals in their first 12 matches, compared to their rivals Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid who have only let in eight and nine goals respectively.
However, the effects are still being felt from their devastating Champions League exit to Liverpool last season and manager Ernesto Valverde is under intense pressure from the Nou Camp faithful.

Koeman, who is currently the head coach of the Dutch national team, admitted to Dutch press (via the Liverpool Echo) that becoming the next manager of the European giants is definitely a ‘possibility’ due to a clause in his contract.
Supporters were in disbelief about the rumours and feared for the future of Barcelona if he were to be appointed.
