Valverde Out - Pochettino In

https://metro.co.uk/2020/01/13/barcelon ... -12050834/

Barcelona’s board have reportedly decided to sack Ernesto Valverde after a meeting on Monday, with axed Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino the frontrunner to replace him. The 55-year-old coach has been under increasing pressure after losing the Spanish Super Cup semi-final against Atletico Madrid, as well as falling out with some of the squad – notably Arturo Vidal. Valverde took training on Monday and spoke with club president Josep Maria Bartomeu afterwards to discuss the situation and whether he should continue in the role before Bartomeu met with the rest of the board.

Finally.

Had been monitoring the situation up to late afternoon UK time.

Can't wait for Mauricio Pochettino to be appointed as new coach.

We watched this very boring video, 500 times, of Sacchi doing defensive drills, using sticks and without the ball, with Maldini, Baresi and Albertini. We used to think before then that if the other players are better, you have to lose. After that we learned anything is possible – you can beat better teams by using tactics." Jurgen Klopp

Poch will never coach Barca or Arsenal because of rivalry.He is likely going to Manu.

Espanyol vs Barca

He cannot be hired by Barcelona b/c of his espanyol roots.

He's Argentine and coached and played for Espanyol, not even his hometown connection with Messi will bring him to FC Barcelona. Now PSG and Man United, those are jobs he might consider.

He was considered. They won't have considered him if the Espanyol connections were prohibitive. Borinho said he would never coach Spurs. Poch would grab the job with both arms if it was offered, despite his claims. It's not like Pep going to Madrid.

What coaches say and what they do are not always in sync.

I really don't understand why people keep considering Poch as an option when he HIMSELF is on record as saying he'll never manage Barcelona because of his love and affiliation to his previous clubs

You are having your panties in a bunch again because another of your Spanish husbands has lost his job. Havent you no shame at all?


It is Valverde who is classless!

It is classless for any coach to make Barcelona to play like Stoke
It is classless for any coach to lead by 4-1 and go to Roma and lose
It is classless for any coach to lead by 3-0 and go to Liverpool and lose
It is classless for any coach to frustrate the life out of Dembele and Malcom
It is classless for any coach to play multiple defensive midfielders in a Barcelona midfield.

Valverde is a classless coach and a classless human being for forcing us to watch that nonsense he calls football. Nonsense!

Employing a serious coach is one of the most important thing any club can do. I cannot stress it more!
