Henrik Larsson returns to Barca as assistant to Ronald Koeman

FC Barcelona

FC Barcelona on Friday confirmed that former player Henrik Larsson and Alfred Schreuder had been named as assistants to new first team coach Ronaldo Koeman.

The pair have both signed contracts until the end of June 2022, the club confirmed.

48-year-old former Swedish international Larsson returns to Barca after making 40 appearances for the club and netting 13 goals as a player between 2004 and 2006.

During his spell at the Camp Nou he helped Barca win the Champions League under the guidance of Frank Rijkaard, and was a popular and respected dressing room figure.

Schreuder coached German side Hoffenheim last season, and perhaps more importantly, was assistant to Ten Hag at Ajax, where he worked with current Barca midfielder Frenkie de Jong.

He is also known for working hard at set pieces and will collaborate with Koeman in planning the tactical side of Barca’s game.
