FC Barcelona announced that it would come out with a statement at 9 p.m., but that statement is not yet available. The expectation is that the Catalans will come with the news on Monday evening that trainer Ernesto Valverde has been kicked out.
The football world is anxiously waiting, but to date Barcelona has not brought out any news. Former Real Betis trainer Quique Setién is mentioned on social media as Barca’s new trainer, but there is as yet no concrete information to assume that this is actually the case. We are waiting for a communication from Barcelona.
UPDATE: Various Spanish media report the resignation of Ernesto Valverde on Monday evening. In addition, the media knows that Quique Setién, former trainer of Real Betis, will take over at Camp Nou. However, an official statement from the Catalans is not yet available, making it likely that FC Barcelona will not announce the change of coach until Tuesday.
Barcelona statement was expected at 9:00 PM CET. We’re still waiting …

Quique Setién is the new trainer from Barcelona. It remains a strange moment in the season to jump in. Certainly for the type of trainer as Setién is. He chose 3-5-2 at Betis and can certainly apply that due to the injury of Suarez.
