Former FC Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola believes Ronald Koeman will show his real quality in the coming new season.
Koeman joined Barcelona last season and finished third with seven points behind champions Atletico Madrid, while disappointly getting out in the last 16 stage of the UEFA Champions League.
The club has since showed faith in the Dutchman by extending his contract for another year.
"Koeman is the ideal coach for next season, I am very happy and the president is convinced," Pep said via Cadena SER.
"It has been a difficult year for everyone and Ronald deserves one more year, with people in the stadium. Besides, second years are always better.
"At times, the team has played very well, they are among those who played better football in Spain," the Man City coach concluded.
Meanwhile, global football turns all attention to the 2020 UEFA Euros that are starting on Friday 11 June in Rome.
