Following claims that Ronald Koeman could be moving to Newcastle in the summer, the Dutch manager’s agent has clarified what will happen in reality.

Serial offenders The Sunday People were responsible for the headlines at the weekend, with claims that Newcastle could bring in Southampton boss Ronald Koeman in the summer, with the most difficult hurdle being to pay £2m in compensation to get his release.

The ‘exclusive’ reading:

‘But Koeman, who has worked wonders at Southampton this season since joining from Dutch side Feyenoord, has emerged as a leading contender for a number of reasons – despite the fact it would cost £2million to secure his release.

He would have no issue working within the Newcastle business model, in which director of football Graham Carr has a major say.’

Now Ronald Koeman’s agent, Guido Albers, when speaking to Dutch football website Soccer news has come up with a carefully considered four word response, which could be also a critique of the newspaper’s overall football coverage…

“It is absolute nonsense.”
