The head coach of Barcelona football club of Spain, Ronald Koeman is under intense pressure following his side's 3-0 loss against Benfica.

The Spanish giant lost its second successive champions league match having lost 3-0 to Bayern Munich at Camp Nou 2 weeks ago.

The Dutchman has endured a torrid period in Spain since he joined the Catalan club and the most painful experience under him was the departure of Lionel Messi.

However, a new era must begin without the Argentine international but recent results from the Bluangrana club have shown Ronald Koeman is not the right man to lead the new generation.

Here is the list of 5 football managers who could be lured into taking the Barcelona job.

(1) Xavi Hernández

The Barcelona legend is a fan favorite and should a vote be cast on who should be Ronald Koeman's successor, then Xavi could easily win it.

The Al Sadd head coach has been tipped for a return to Barcelona and that time could be now.

The former Chelsea and Juventus manager has been out of a job since he left Inter Milan in the summer.

Conte is known for his winning spirit and should Barcelona thought of returning to a team that could challenge in Europe, then the Italian gaffer is the right man for the job.

(3) Pep Guardiola

The Manchester City manager is another good option when it comes to choosing a new boss for Barcelona.

Pep Guardiola understands the tradition of the club has overseen the affairs of the club in the time pass and a return would be warmly welcomed.

The Arsenal football club manager has resurged his side with three back-to-back wins in the English premier league.

Mikel Arteta could find himself in Barcelona if he continues to impress in England and that will be an upgrade on his part.

(5) Zinedine Zidane

I can guess the look on your face after seeing this name but when it comes to football anything is possible.

Zinedine Zidane has been out of a job since he left Real Madrid in the summer and Barcelona would provide another avenue for him to return to work.

No condition says he can't coach Barca and I don't think Real Madrid has any legal action to stop that from happening.
