Ernesto Valverde has been dismissed as the coach of the Spanish superpower Barcelona. Kiki Setien has been appointed as the new coach instead. The rumor that lasted for a few days came true. Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde has been drafted. He has been replaced by 61-year-old Spanish coach Kiki Setien. Barcelona has signed a two-and-a-half-year deal with the former Real Betis coach until 2022. Bangladesh announced their decision on social media around 4 pm.
Barcelona appointed Kiki Setien as the new coach in a very dramatic way. Prior to this, Kiki Setien was the coach of Real Betis. Statistics say that Barcelona sacked the coach for the first time in nearly a year after the first season. Louis van Gaal, the last 2003, had the same fate. But Barcelona is happy enough to get Setienne as the new coach.
Barcelona lost to Atletico Madrid in the Super copper semifinal a few days ago. It was then that the Spanish champions lost their patience. Then they made the final decision on Valvard.
Ettienne, however, was not Barcelona’s main choice as his coach. Barcelona has been in talks with their former midfielder Xavi and current Netherlands coach Ronald Koeman for the past few days. But nobody wanted to quit their current job in the middle of the season and come to Bar ।a. So Barcelona has to rely on Ettienne.
