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 first-half in the present season, the team hit it to him in the semifinals of the Supercopa of Spain. The technician extremeño is again in the eye of the hurricane.

To day of today, with the Txingurri to the edge of the dismissal, the candidature of Xavi Hernández to be the new technician of the FC Barcelona has won a lot of strength. The egarense embodies the ideal values for the Catalan club and his methodology fits in the perfection with the philosophy of game that implants from the Masia. In spite of this, has not been the only option that has handled .

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.

In addition to them, also it appeared the option of Quique Setién, a technician that has not trained to clubs of maximum European level but that has showed in teams like the The Palms or the Real Betis a very attractive style that would fit well in the Camp Nou. Nevertheless, this fault of experience in the elite would have been definite for, by the moment, descartarle.

Of incomprehensible form, these two renewals were closed in February of 2018 and 2019, still with everything at stake, and finally in both finish generating doubts. After this, kept the bet by the technician extremeño and no ceased him , aunqueahora seems that it has exhausted him the credit.
