Setien, the favourite to manage Barcelona

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 9,676

Quique Setien is the favourite to manage FC Barcelona in place of Ernesto Valverde, who is counting down the hours until he leaves the team.

Valverde only has a couple of hours left as Barcelona coach. After the meeting that took place between him and Josep Maria Bartomeu this afternoon, the coach knows that he will not stay on, as 'Marca' states.

Amongst the possible candidates are Pochettino, Koeman, Garcia Pimienta and Setien, amongst others. Interestingly, Setien has become the number one candidate to lead the Barcelona team.

Both 'AS' and 'Onda Cero' agree that the ex-Betis man has become the favourite in the last few hours. Moreover, both medias point out that the first contacts between both parties would have already taken place.

The coach is without a team after his exit of the green-white picture. On May 19, 2019, the team announced his dismissal after the victory against Real Madrid. Since then, the former Las Palmas man has not coached any club.

Mundo Deportivo' said that Valverde's dismissal will be made official on Monday in a press release and that Bartomeu and Abidal will not appear.
