It seems that Barcelona’s loss to Atletico Madrid in the Spanish Super was the straw that broke the future of Ernesto Valverde.
Barcelona, despite advancing until the 80th minute with two goals against a goal, Atletico Madrid managed to turn the tables around and won 3-2 and kidnapped the pass of the Spanish Super Final.
Radio Radio Catalunya said that Eric Abidal, Athletic Director of the Catalan Club, and Oscar Jarrow, CEO They traveled to Qatar to meet with Xavi Hernandez to lead the team.
Yesterday, after the loss, Catalan radio reported that Valverde’s future was at stake because of the division in the club’s corridors over its continuation.
The published report concluded that there was a meeting next Monday that would decide the Spaniard’s fate at the head of the team’s technical leadership.
The former coach of Valencia and Bilbao took over in Barcelona in July 2017, and since then the team has coached in 145 games, winning 97 of them, drawing 32 and losing 16.
Valverde won the Spanish League twice, and won the King’s Cup once, and the Super Cup only once.
Valverde’s greatest failure came in the Champions League, where he bid farewell to the past two copies by Roma and then Liverpool in two famous returns in the names of Costas Manolas and Divoc Origi.
On the other hand, Xavi started his training career early this season with the Qatari Dam after his retirement at the end of last season.
The 39-year-old Spaniard led the Qatari champions in 26 games, won 14, drew 2 and lost 10, and finished sixth in the Club World Cup.
