After three seasons with Roda JC, Hesp signed with Spanish side FC Barcelona as the Catalans were being managed by countryman Louis van Gaal, also newly-signed. He easily beat competition from Portuguese Vitot Baia, playing in 73 out of 76 possible La Ligamatches as Barça won back-to-back leagues (in 1998, the double befell).
In his last season at the Camp Nou, Hesp split first-choice status with youth graduate Francesc Arnau, then moved back to the Netherlands and Fortuna, retiring at almost 37 in 2002. Subsequently, he joined FC Groningen as a goalkeeper coach.
