The former Tottenham boss has recently backtracked on comments he made 18 months ago, ruling out the possibility of managing Barcelona but he is far from a shoo-in for the job.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTRonald Koeman, a former Barcelona player who has recently recovered from heart surgery, is under consideration, as is Max Allegri who has enjoyed a year-long sabbatical after leaving Juventus last summer.

We’ve have hit rock bottom now.
