According to club president Joseph Bartomeu, Barcelona has sacked Quique Setian and selected a three-man squad for the managerial position. Setien was appointed Barcelona manager in January, replacing Ernesto Valverde, who was also sacked by the club.
FC Barcelona’s New Coach Shortlist
Although no official statement has been made, Romano revealed that Ronald Koman, Mauricio Pochettino, and Xavi are on the three-man list to become Barcelona coach.
Setien was appointed Barcelona manager in January, replacing Ernesto Valverde, who was also sacked by the club. They have to choose a manager because the pre-season starts in two weeks’ time.
It seems that they are having a discussion tomorrow but Koeman will need to separate from the national side, so there is still time for this to happen. He is a name that will please everyone more or less. He was the one who made Holland qualify (unbeaten) for the 2020 Euro cup after their disappointing run on the 2016 Euro cup and the 2018 Fifa World Cup.
The Dutchman played six seasons in Barca colors and scored the decisive goal at Wembley via a free-kick to hand Barca their first European Cup. So, Barca fans rejoice yourself for a fresh start as the official statement for FC Barcelona’s new coach will release anytime soon!
