BARCELONA – Presidential candidate Barcelona, Jordi Ferre, made political promises ahead of the presidential elections Blaugrana – nicknamed Barcelona – on March 15, 2021. If elected as president of Barcelona, Jordi Ferre promised to bring Liverpool coach, Jurgen Klopp, to the Estadio Camp Nou.
Barcelona’s management is a bit shaky after the Blaugrana lost 2-8 to Bayern Munich in the 2019-2020 Champions League quarter-finals, Saturday, August 15 2020 WIB. After the humiliating defeat, Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu was asked to resign.

However, Bartomeu did not step down from his position before elections that are held next year. In order to increase his electability as president ahead of the election, Bartomeu made a number of breakthroughs.
He decided to fire coach Quique Setien and replace him with Ronald Koeman. Likewise in the position of sporting director, where Eric Abidal was replaced by Ramon Plenas.
Currently, Koeman is under a contract until June 30, 2022. However, if Jordi Ferre is elected as president of Barcelona and at the same time Koeman fails to raise the Blaugrana’s achievements, he will not hesitate to fire the Dutch tactician.
“If Koeman does well, I will continue his tenure. However, we already spoke with Klopp. Because, in my opinion Barcelona needs a coach like that, “Jordi Ferre quoted him as saying Sport, Monday (24/8/2020).
Klopp is currently under contract with Liverpool until 30 June 2024. However, the German passport coach could leave Liverpool next season, considering that he almost won all major trophies together. The Reds – the nickname Liverpool.

Since being appointed as Liverpool coach in October 2015, Klopp has changed Liverpool’s fortunes. When Klopp was present, Liverpool were just a mid-table team.
However, in Klopp’s hands, Liverpool emerged as the king of England to Europe. Therefore, it’s no wonder Jordi Ferre will float Klopp’s name if he is elected president of Barcelona.
For Jordi Ferre himself, this is the second time for him to run for president of Barcelona. Previously, he ran for office in 2015, but lost to Bartomeu.
