The figure of Ernesto Valverde was argued by the barcelonismo from his arrival. In his first season, won LaLiga and the Glass of Rey, but a humillante elimination in quarter-finals of the Champions League in front of the Rome (3-0) put him in the eye of the hurricane. It kept the place, went back to win LaLiga but again finish his European career with a defeat even more frustrante in front of the Liverpool (4-0) in semifinals.

It was then when no longer only a big part of the fans asked the head of the Txingurri, but also splits of the directive. In spite of this, the bet of Josep Maria Bartomeu by the extremeño kept and his irregular start of season has gone back to put his continuity to debate. Now Valverde has a big part of the barcelonismo against, but it is necessary to take into account that his management also has positive points.

Bet by the quarry

One of the appearances that more criticised him to Ernesto Valverde in his two first seasons were the few opportunities that delivered between the youngsters of the Masia. In the present campaign, the Txingurri seems to have invested this dynamics and, in front of the drops, in place to bet for changing of position to players of the first team as it was used to to do, preferred to give the alternative to the canteranos. Ansu Fati And Carles Pérez have answered with a big level.

Management of the 'heavy weights'

Ernesto Valverde does not marry with anybody and has showed it. The Txingurri convinced to players like Leo Messi or Luis Suárez of the rotations or has not shivered him the pulse to the hour to seat to the one who has believed convenient. The best example of this is the one of Ivan Rakitic, that has happened to play it practically everything to be relegado to the bench in front of the good performance of Arthur Melo and Frenkie of Jong.

Changes of system

Ernesto Valverde is not of the technicians that wants to subject to the players to his ideas, but it adapts to what has. In his first campaign, changed the 4-3-3 employee from did years to play with a 4-4-2 that gave him the doublet. It is true that afterwards went back to the 4-3-3, but the Txingurri knows to look for solutions when the things do not go well and showed it against the Inter, contriving a 4-2-1-3 that revolutionised the party.

It keeps the calm

Ernesto Valverde is a calm man, measures his words and his actions, does not complain by the circunatancias negative. It arrived and it found with the earthquake of the course of Neymar, did not alter in spite of the doubts of the directive with him by the eliminations in Champions, did not complain because they did not arrive signings that eél asked like the ones of Willian or Íñigo Martínez... Besides, the changing room is to death with him and always has defended him.
