With a so competitive staff like the one of this year, there was a lot of expectancy of face to the first announcement, that has been 'simple' for Ernesto Valverde. A lot of wanted to know the tastes and the priorities of the trainer through his first decisions, but this has found with some situations that have helped him to choose.
