Real Betis' legendary forward Joaquin has poured scorn on Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman and insists he would not even hire him as a kit man after playing under him in an ill-fated six months at Valencia.

Joaquin, now 39 and still going strong at Betis, was at the peak of his powers at Los Che between 2006 and 2011, but didn't enjoy the six months Koeman spent in charge of the team.

Despite them winning the Copa del Rey, Koeman was cut-throat in his decimation of the squad, selling lots of players in a bid to fix the financial problems behind the scenes.

That didn't go down well with the players and as Joaquin readies himself to come up against his old manager for Real Betis against Barcelona this week, he admits he will not be greeting Koeman on the night. 

'It was not the most beautiful experience of my sports career,' Joaquin said on
