Breaking: Barca Sack Valverde, Announce New Coach

The Catalan club confirmed the sacking of Ernesto Valverde in the early hours of Tuesday morning, replacing him with former Real Betis manager Quique Setien.

The 61-year-old signed a deal that will see him take charge of the Blaugrana until June 2022, but this might only be the case if a reported clause in his contract is not activated come the end of the campaign.

According to ESPN, Setien has a break clause in his deal that could see his contract being terminated in June later this year, amid rumours Xavi Hernandez is still in line to take over ahead of the next campaign.

The former Barcelona midfielder was believed to be the club's preferred replacement for Valverde, but rejected the chance to become manager due to his commitments at Al-Sadd.

Xavi was also reportedly not comfortable with the manner in which he was approached for the job as Valverde was still in charge at the time of his meeting with Blaugrana sporting director Eric Abidal.
