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 a very irregular first-half of 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 it arrived to go out to the light a clause of leakage that has in the combined Dutch if it receives a proposal of the Barça.

The another big candidate has been Erik have Hag, trainer of the Ajax. The past season, achieved the 'doublet' with the team of Ámsterdam and turned it into the big disclosure of the Champions League, arriving until the semifinals and remaining taken down of the final by an agónico goal in the last sigh. His philosophy of game, as the one of Koeman, fits to perfection with the one of the Barça.

The newspaper Sport aims in his edition of this Monday a third candidate to relieve to Valverde: Thierry Henry. The French, mythical ex footballer of the Arsenal with a brief but excitoso go through the FC Barcelona -won a sextete- to the orders of Pep Guardiola, would be seen like a good alternative by a sector of the directive in case that the Txingurri do not follow.

"It likes Henry", titles the media quoted previously in his cover, puntualizando that "a sector of the board of the Barça thinks that gives the suitable profile in case Valverde does not follow". From the past month of November, the French trains to the Montral Impact -where coincides with Bojan Krkic- whereas in the past trained to the ACE Monaco in an adventure in which it did not have good results.

Apprentice of Guardiola

Thierry Henry coincided two years with Pep Guardiola​ in the Barça and in numerous occasions has recognised that remained very marked by the Catalan technician and that it wants to be a trainer of the same style. The advantage of the French is that it knows part of the changing room and also the philosophy of game culé, by what could be an option very to take into account.
