Social Media Reacts As Barca Shockingly Sack Valverde

FC Barcelona’s decision to sack Ernesto Valverde on Monday night following a string of dismal results was met with widespread shock on social media.

The final nail in Valverde’s proverbial coffin came after Barca’s 3-2 Supercopa de Espana semi-final loss to Atletico Madrid.

The Catalans wasted no time in appointing his successor and named former Real Betis manager Quique Setien as their new coach until 2022.
