Tickets for FC Barcelona matches

The situation of Ernesto Valverde in the bench of the FC Barcelona is more discussed that never. After two deafening failures in the two last editions of the Champions League and to a very irregular start in the present season, the technician extremeño is again in the eye of the hurricane, as already it was it before the past summer.

Along the last months have gone out several names to the palestra like possible substitutes of the Txingurri in the bench of the Camp Nou. The one who has won more strength is the one of Ronald Koeman, ex Barcelona and current footballer technician of the Dutch selection. Even Erik have Hag, technician of the Ajax of Ámsterdam or Marcelo Gallardo, current trainer of River Plate, have sounded like possible reliefs of the Txingurri.

The problem is that all they have team at present, with the puntualización of Koeman, that has a clause of leakage in case it calls him the FC Barcelona. If we comb the market of trainers, will see to a lot of technicians of prestige that at present do not have team and that they could posit like alternatives.


Mauricio Pochettino is, without place to doubts, one of the names of the moment. The Argentinian was destituido by the Tottenham Hotspur after the bad results of the present season (José Mourinho substituted him), in spite of that in the previous carried to the team to the final of the Champions League, losing it against the Liverpool. However, in some occasion has left to fall that it would not want to train to the Barça by his past in the Espanyol.


Massimiliano Allegri is another of the trainers contrasted that at present they are without team, since it decided to take a sabbatical year after his exit of the Juentus of Turín, that substituted him by Maurizio Sarri. His style does not coincide precisely with the Barcelona philosophy of the offensive football and of possession, but the Italian has a lot of route and experience.


Laurent Blanc did a good work at the head of Paris Saint-Germain does some seasons and his style of football yes bases in an offensive and showy philosophy. In fact, the Barça already posed his signing does time, although finally it did not finish consecrating like the first option. Now, without team, could assume a new ambitious challenge.


Quique Setién is not a trainer that have experience in teams of elite, by what his hypothetical arrival to the FC Barcelona would be a risky bet. This yes, his idea of game fits to perfection in what it always looks for the Barcelona club in a technician. In fact, it tried to implant his idea of football of possession in the Real Betis, but maybe by fault of tools did not attain to fulfil with the expectations. However, already they miss him in the Villamarín.


Arsène Wenger, recently designated like director of World-wide Development of Football by the International Federation of Football Association (FIFA), does not train since it decided to abandon the Arsenal. Without knowing if his withdrawal of the benches is definite, has linked him with the Bayern of Munich, by what neither would be rare that situated him in the Barça if Valverde jumps. His path in the Premier League endorses him.


Marcelino García Toral does not go in in any of the quinielas for a future arrival to the FC Barcelona, but is a trainer of big route, experience and knowledge of LaLiga. It left of Valencia by the polvorín internal in the club, but deportivamente speaking left a very positive balance, with a Glass of the King attained precisely against the Barça. It sounded like posble seleccionador of Spain.


Luciano Spalletti, in an alike case to the of Allegri, does not have internalised the 'style Barça', but yes has an interesting path in series To, in which it achieved to win two Glasses of Italy like technician of the Rome. With the Inter of Milan, although it did not win titles, yes achieved good results, although it went finally relieved by Antonio Conte.
