Breaking!! Barcelona sacks coach Ernesto Valverde

European football giant Barcelona have officially parted ways with coach Ernesto Valverde

Rumors of his sack started last week when the club lost to Atletico Madrid in the semifinals of the Spanish Super Cup.

Few minutes ago, the club released a statement to confirm the sack of the coach

They wrote;

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


Should the club make the sacking action official, Ernesto Valverde will go into history as the first coach to be axed by Barcelona in mid season since the sack of Louis Van Gaal in the 2002/03 season.

Though Ernesto Valverde won the Spanish League title in all his full seasons at Barcelona, the fans never appreciated him because of his pragmatic style of football.

His record in Europe leaves a lot to be desired of. In his 2 seasons in the Uefa Champions League, he threw away 3 goals first leg advantage to crash out of the UCL disgracefully to AS Roma and Liverpool respectively.
