The current Leeds United manager was actually one of the coaches in a shortlist that FC Barcelona had in case Pep Guardiola left the club.

The problems came when the Argentine manager started picking up the fame of mistreating the Athletic Bilbao players, which is something that the Barcelona board considered a red flag.
