Barcelona to appoint former Chelsea boss next season?

Published Add your comment

Vastly-experienced Dutch coach Guus Hiddink is a potential candidate to replace Tata Martino at Barcelona next season, according to Mundo Deportivo sources.

The Spanish newspaper quote Agencia News as claiming that the La Liga champions could move for the 67-year-old if Martino leaves the Camp Nou in the summer.

Barcelona currently find themselves joint top of the Primera Liga table, and through to the last 16 of the Champions League, but their style of play under Martino has not impressed everyone.

The Catalan giants, who consider playing with style just as important as winning football matches, have changed since Martino replaced Tito Vilanova.

One notable change includes the significant increase in long, diagonal passes, while the team no longer builds from the back with the same regularity of the Guardiola/Vilanova era.

Hiddink, who has coached some of the world's best teams including Real Madrid and Chelsea during his glittering managerial career, is currently without a club after leaving Anzhi Makhachkala in the summer.

And it's believed that Barcelona consider him as the ideal coach to get the team playing with style again.
