Martino Is New Barca Boss

The latest reports coming out of Spain are saying that Tata Martino is the new Barcelona coach.

Widespread reports in the Spanish press (from Marca and El Mundo Deportivo) confirm that Barcelona have appointed the Argentine as their new coach.

He is set to replace Tito Vilanova who was forced to step down because he could not combine the treatment which he is undergoing in his fight against cancer with the workload required to manage Barcelona.

The reports suggest that Martino has signed a three-year deal after holding talks with Barcelona over the past few days following the departure of Vilanova due to his illness.

The 50-year-old, who reportedly comes to the Nou Camp on the recommendation of Lionel Messi, has agreed terms with Barcelona president Sandro Rosell.

The former Newell’s Old Boys coach brings Elvio Paolorroso and Jorge Pautasso with him to the Nou Camp, as assistant coach and trainer, respectively.
