Netherlands coach Ronaldo Koeman has not ruled out the possibility of coaching FC Barcelona next season after being named as one of the candidates to replace Ernesto Valverde if he's sacked by the Catalan club. 

Koeman was asked in a press conference if he could deny the stories linking him with Camp Nou and he said: "It would be very easy to do so, but I am not going to do it." 

The coach regused to talk anymore about the subject, preferring to focus on the UEFA Nations League Final Four, which his country take part in next weekend in Portugal. 

He added: "I think that this (press conference) is to do with the national team and I would like to keep it that way." 

Valverde's future is on the ropes following the Champions League KO at Liverpool and the Copa del Rey final defeat to Valencia. 

Sources close to the club say no decision has been taken yet and that no announcment is imminent regarding the Camp Nou bench. 

Koeman spent five years att Barça as a player, where he won a European Cup, four leagues and a Copa del Rey.
