Barcelona Sack Valverde, Quique Setien Announced As New Head Coach

Barcelona

The Liga leaders have parted way with the 55-year-old, with the former Real Betis boss brought in to replace him
Barcelona have announced the dismissal of head coach Ernesto Valverde, with Quique Setien taking charge of the Spanish champions on that deal that runs until 2022.

Barca made the decision to extend Valverde’s deal for an additional season in February of last year, which preceded an embarrassing Champions League capitulation at the hands of Liverpool just months later, having done similar against Roma in the previous campaign.

And while the 55-year-old has delivered back-to-back Primera Division titles and currently has the Blaugrana sitting at the top of La Liga – albeit on goal difference – European disappointment is not the only black mark next to Valverde’s name.

Indeed, a Copa del Rey final loss to Valencia was not the expected result in Barca’s final match of last season, while a recent Supercopa de Espana defeat against Atletico Madrid has only served to highlight the inconsistency of a team bursting with world-class talent.

Finally taking the decision to part ways with Basque boss on Monday, an official statement from Barca reads: Agreement between FC Barcelona and Ernesto Valverde to end his contract as manager of the first team. Thank you for everything, Ernesto. Best of luck in the future.”

Odion Ighalo

Manchester United football club of England is in talks to sign Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo according to new reports.

The English club is reportedly ‘desperate’ for a striker following a three months injury to Marcus Rashford and a shock 2-0 loss to Burnley on Wednesday.

Man U had made former Solksjaer player, Erling Braut Haaland, one of their top targets ahead of January, but a deal broke down because of doubts surrounding the structure of the deal and the agent Mino Raiola’s plan to rip off the club in any future sale of the player.

But according to Sky Sports on Friday, United have made shock approaches for two former Premier League players Odion Ighalo and Islam Slimani and want them either of them on 6 month loan deals. The club has included the names of both strikers on a their transfer sheet according to Sky Sports.

Slimani is a Leicester player but is on loan at Monaco while Ighalo plays in the Chinese league with Shanghai Shenhua.

If Manchester United sign Ighalo, he’ll be the club’s first senior Nigerian player in history.

Speaking after the 2-0 defeat at Liverpool last Sunday, Solskjaer said he’ll consider temporary solutions in the loan market.

“It’s just an unfortunate situation we are in,” he told Sky Sports.

“It might be because the window is open, that we look at some short-term options.
