Barcelona welcome league leader sevilla on this weekend. With just two points separating the top six sides, this clash will be hard to predict the manager’s future.
Ernesto Valverde is on his final year of his contract. This contract does not include an 12-month extension, with the board now looking happy to let him move. Laurent Blanc along with Real Betis coach Quique Setien are set to be his replacement. Neymar left shortly after the pre-season games for a record €222 million.
With a remarkable come back by AS Roma in the second leg, ended Barcelona’s dreams of champions league trophy. However, after winning the La liga and copa de Ray they ended with a high and par with the rivals real madrid who won their third champions league in row. With Andres Iniesta leaving last season coutinho has just started to fill up the void left by the magician. Ousmane Dembele has shown his potential but he has a lot to improve if Barcelona wants to get the full of 4-3-3 formation.
This season has one of the best for neutrals, as every team has struggled during the opening games. Barcelona has lost one and drawn three games already this season. Barcelona’s defensive have conceded nine goals in the eight la liga games, the problem is yet to be sorted out. Barcelona already have a huge list of players under their radar to improve the squad. This tough start to the season has raised many questions for the manager’s future.
Anything is possible in football, if Barcelona can turn around this season. if Ernesto Valverde can provide hope to the board and convince them with delivering major trophies, or to conquer Europe then Ernesto Valverde might be given a new contract extension.
