Barcelona coach Koeman: I can't stop job rumours

Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman says he can't stop speculation about his future.

There has been rumours about whether Koeman will continue as coach at Camp Nou beyond the summer.

"That's not one to answer now but after the last game of the season," Koeman said Monday. "There's no need to look for things where there is nothing. From the first day, the president has shown confidence in me. He's the one who can make decisions and after the season finishes, we will talk about the future.

"But I am not worried, I signed a two-year deal and I see myself here next year. If that's not the case, the president will have to speak to me. We've arranged to talk at the end of the campaign. There are still two weeks to go and we have three very important games, so now is not the time to talk about my future. "

Asked if he's annoyed about the doubts, he added: "I don't think it's only me, it also happens with other coaches. Maybe it's a custom here (in Spain). As a foreigner, I can't change that.

"There are things that are in the press, everyone has their opinion... The only thing I want is that with the people I work with, we analyst the season in two weeks and see the changes we've made."
