Everton manager Ronald Koeman dreams of coaching former club Barcelona but insists he is committed to the challenge of getting the Toffees into the Champions League first.

The former defender, who spent six years at the Nou Camp between 1989 and 1995, has regularly been linked with a return to his old club after Luis Enrique announced he was stepping down at the end of the season.

"Everyone knows that I am from Barca, they know my love for a club where I grew up as a player and as a person," he said ahead of tomorrow's trip to Swansea.

"My other wish, my other dream, is to one day coach Barca. That's the truth.

"I now owe to Everton. We have a very powerful and exciting project and we will reinforce our best to try to reach next season the Champions League."
