The failure of the FC Barcelona in the Supercopa of Spain sentenced to Ernesto Valverde like trainer of the first team. The club had showed until the moment his unconditional support to the Txingurri, even with painful defeats like the ones of Champions League against the Rome and the Liverpool, but this blind faith in the extremeño has gone diminishing paulatinamente.

In the first place, because the game of the FC Barcelona in the last months has gone worsening, in spite of that the staff apuntaló with important signings in a lot of occasions sued by the own Valverde. The culés have gone saving the results, but with a game very little consistent and based almost exclusively in the illuminations of Leo Messi or Luis Suárez in the forward.

The Classical , in spite of the final tie, went an important turning point, since the Barça was inferior to the madridistas as it did years that was not it.

The defeat in the Supercopa of Spain has finish being the definite argument to deliver his head.

But it will not be easy that the FC Barcelona find to a candidate contrasted and that accept what the Barça wants to: an agreement of six months. In the Barcelona club plan fichar to a technician so that it finish the campaign and, to the term of this, deliver him the controls of the team to another trainer, that very probably was the own Xavi.

Few firm candidates

To the palestra have gone out names like the ones of Mauritius Pochettino or Quique Setién, that to day of today do not have team and fit in the profile. García Pepper, of the filial, is the alternative to substitute to a Valverde that every time is more was.
