The extraordinary summit that are keeping in the Camp Nou the members of the managerial board and the heavy weights of the technical area, Abidal and Ramon Plans, would not go oriented to decide if Ernesto Valverde follows or no, but rather to choose who is the new technician of the group culé to the end of the present season 2019-20. Of this has informed in the last hours the newspaper MARKS.

Through the delegate of the quoted half in Barcelona, Luis F. Red, has desvelado that Bartomeu already would have communicated this noon to Ernesto Valverde that does not follow like trainer of the FC Barcelona. What would have decided in this last meeting, therefore, is the name of the trainer in the short term of the team culé, that would go out of these three candidates: Pochettino, Setién and the entenador of the Barça B, García-Pepper. To this hour, Quique Setién is the big favourite and his representative already has been seen in the City Condal.

The decision of the change of trainer is surprising to many, so much barcelonistas as no, taking into account lto fault of planning and the management run over of the managerial board to the hour to handle this situation. Xavi Hernández and Ronald Koeman would have denied to take the reins of the team to half of season, when having sealed his commitments with the To the Sadd and the selection of Holland.

From here that the heights estamentos of the club have gathered of urgency to value the name of a trainer that could last six months, the time that is missing until it finish the season 2019-20 and, then yes, Xavi Hernández have all the ballots to return to the Camp Nou.

From the 'no' of the egarense, in any case, opened a black hole with names that could not being to the height of what represents to train to the Barcelona. Quique Setién and García Pepper do not have the sufficient experience to the hour to handle benches plagados of stars, whereas Pochettino already left very clear in his day that would go "to a farm" before that train to the Barcelona.

Uncertainty and risky decisions

Like this the things, the FC Barcelona confronts now to a full situation of uncertainty of face to the next months. It has taken the decision of destituir to Ernesto Valverde to half of a campaign, after a defeat against the Athletic of Madrid (2-3) in which the Barça played 70 minutes of big football. The culés, remember, follow leaders in LaLiga Santander and are in eighth of Champions League, further to face in the weeks to come the Glass of Rey. It is exceeding the board of Bartomeu the limits of the improvisation?
