Barcelona Confirm Setien Sack As Koeman Talks Advance


Barcelona on Monday confirmed the sacking of coach Quique Setien following the club’s humiliating 8-2 Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich.

The decision to dismiss Setien was announced after a board meeting.

“The board of directors has decided that Quique Setién will no longer be coach of the first team. This is the first in a series of decisions that outline an ample restructuring of the first team. Those changes will be made in consensus with the current technical secretary and will be announced in the upcoming days,” Barca said in a statement.

The announcement confirms VANTAGE NEWS report of Setien’s sack immediately after the embarrassing loss to Bayern of Friday night.

VANTAGE NEWS also earlier today reported that Ronald Koeman has been chosen as the manager to replace Quique Setien as Barcelona coach as talks are already in advanced state.

The former Everton coach is expected to be officially announced as the next Blaugrana club’s manager sometime this week.
