The ex player and Argentinian technician, Claudio Borghi, has surprised ensuring that Marcelo Gallardo will train to Barça since the month of December
Surprising affirmations those that has launched in the last hours the mythical Claudio Borghi, at present commentator after having been player and technical (was champion of the world like footballer with Argentina in 1986), and that seems to have information at first hand on the immediate future of the current trainer of River Plate, Marcelo 'The Doll' Gallardo.
After it have related to Gallardo with the FC Barcelona along the last weeks, Borghi has fed even more the rumorología when showing very taxativo: "Gallardo goes to be technical of Barcelona in December. It is the information that one handles. Marcelo is one of the best technicians of the world. D'Onofrio said that Gallardo went only if he left his charge, but this know it by a direct source", have been his words in the Chilean channel CDF.
The theory to see to Marcelo Gallardo in the Camp Nou goes taking form, therefore, although it bumps directly with the samples of support that has received Ernesto Valverde in the last days, by part of members of the Barcelona club as for example Guillermo Love. The director of institutional relations of the Barça threw a hood before the Barça-Slavia to the 'Txingurri', remembering that it is a big technician and that in the Barça are very happy with him.
In more than an occasion, besides, Josep Maria Bartomeu already left clear that Valverde would be technical of the FC Barcelona like minimum to the end of the present season, by what seems complicated that it go to do the cases in December. This, unless the bad series of results and game of the team lengthen , and the president culé see forced to take drastic measures.
Gallardo, a 'patch' until the arrival of Koeman?
The most likely is that Gallardo was the technician that the Barcelona saves in the recámara in case it is necessary to give door to Valverde, with other trainers like Ronald Koeman more on a long-term basis. The Dutch, remember, has a special clause to change the selection of Holland by the bench of the Camp Nou that it will be able to exert from summer of 2020, after the Eurocopa.
Until then, if the Barcelona needs to change of technician although it only was for half campaign, Marcelo Gallardo could be the elected. But as we have said, to day of today seems unlikely that Ernesto Valverde go to abandon the club in December. It will be necessary to see which are the results of the FC Barcelona in the next parties... And the climate of the fans culé.
