The goodbye of Ernesto Valverde to the FC Barcelona was a secret to voices, but did not confirm until this past Monday. The group barcelonista decided to cease to the technician extremeño and hired in his place to Quique Setién. The Barça decided to launch a communiqué in his web page to explain the course of the trainer of Viandar of the Edge and launched him a small dart when remembering two of his big failures at the head of the team.

The culés, when remembering the stage of the 'Txingurri' in the Barcelona, signalled the defeats against the Liverpool in Champions League and in front of the Valency in the final of the Glass of Rey. "The final stretch of course had two disappointments: the elimination against the Liverpool in the semifinals of the Champions and the defeat in the final of Glass played in Seville against Valencia", prayed the writing.

In spite of this affirmation, that on the other hand is totally true, the blaugrana limited to speak point by point of these two years of the ex of the Athletic in the Camp Nou. The full stop was to highlight the become this campaign, highlighting the fiasco of the Supercopa. "In this season 2019/20, the Barça has closed the first turn like leader of the competition of League -empatado to points with the Real Madrid- and classified for the eighth of final in the Champions, whereas the week happened the team fell in the semifinals of the Supercopa of Spain against the Athletic of Madrid", prays the communiqué.

On the other hand, the barcelonistas wished him the best to Valverde and appreciated his services. "The Club expresses publicly his gratitude to Ernesto Valverde by the professionalism, the commitment, the dedication and the always positive and near deal that has showed always to all the estamentos that conform the Barcelona family, and wishes him luck and successes in the future", wrote.

An usual communiqué in the dismissals

Any cessation is pleasant and few communiqués are used to to be to the height. In this case, the Barça has written one very usual in which it has signalled all the successes and failures of Valverde. All the clubs do the same type of writing in all the dismissals and is used to to be usual stand out so much the failures like the tarpaulins. In the case of the extremeño, his big has to have been definitely has been his failures in Champions League. Also it speaks of the loss of style and identity of the team, but also is true that with Luis Enrique already saw to a distinct Barcelona and with less game of touch that antaño.
