Barcelona sack Valverde,Quike Setien is his successor.


The league leaders, Barcelona, ​​have parted ways with the 55-year-old, who has been replaced by former Real Betis boss.

Barcelona have announced the release of head coach Valverde, with Quique Setien taking responsibility for the Spanish champions with a contract, which lasts until 2022.

Last February, Barcelona decided to extend the Valverde’s deal which resulted in the embarrassing Champions League defeat to Liverpool for another season just a few months later, as in previous campaign against Rome.

And while the 55-year-old has delivered back-to-back Primera Division titles and currently has the Blaugrana sitting at the top of La Liga – albeit on goal difference – European disappointment is not the only black mark next to Valverde’s name.
