Barcelona Sack Ernesto Valverde And Appoint Quique Setien As New Coach

Spanish giants, Barcelona have sacked and appointed as their new coach.

The 55-year-old was dismissed following the club’s Spanish Super Cup semi-final 3 – 2 defeat to Atletico Madrid few days ago.

In 2018, Barcelona lost on away goals to Roma, despite winning the first leg 4-1, and had a 3-0 first-leg advantage overturned by Liverpool in an epic comeback by the European Champions a year later.

A brief Barcelona statement read: “Agreement between FC Barcelona and to end his contract as manager of the first team. Thank you for everything, Ernesto. Best of luck in the future.”
