A numerous part of the barcelonismo asked the cessation of Ernesto Valverde after finalising the past season, but Josep Maria Bartomeu followed betting by him knowing of the chemistry that there was between the technician extremeño and the 'heavy weights' of the staff. Since, the Txingurri lives in the eye of the hurricane regarding each decision that takes and to the result of each one of them.

To level of results, the FC Barcelona achieved to solve the phase of groups of the Champions League obtaining the first place and, in LaLiga Santander, the team culé still goes leader (empatado to points with the Real Madrid of Zinedine Zidane), in spite of having accumulated multiple tropiezos during the 20 first days.

Far of these parties in which the Barça has not achieved to win, the real problem are the feelings that moves the team. The Barça has turned into a soft team in defence and very predictable in attack, only saved by the stellar apparitions of Leo Messi or the tarpaulin goleador of Luis Suárez or Antoine Griezmann. Something that goes back to put the finger accuser on Valverde.

The technician extremeño is being the big signalled by the current course of the team and all his decisions are being looked with lupa by the barcelonismo, to the that is him exhausting the confidence in his figure. With all these doubts arrives the dispute of the first title of the season, the Supercopa of Spain, that will be a proof of fire for him.

Suceda What suceda in said tournament, the place of Valverde does not run danger to immediate level, but yes that a defeat will complicate him the continuity to final of season if it combines with new failures in the big titles that will decide in the next months. In other words the Supercopa will not be a final examination, but yes partial for the Txingurri.

A Supercopa with moral value

The Supercopa like such, does not go in inside the group of the big titles to the height of a League or a Champions League, but yes can serve to elevate the morals of a team that needs to go back to believe in his possibilities. The Barça needs to recover his feelings, and more taking into account the emergent improvement of the Real Madrid in the ultimas weeks.
