Barcelona have sacked club coach Quique Setien following the humiliating 8-2 loss to Bayern Munich last week, according to reports.
According to reports from Spain, club president Josep Bartomeu spoke with Spanish outlet Cadena COPE on Sunday night following a meeting with the Barca board, including Eric Abidal.
Bartomeu is believed to have said: “He is out,” when asked about Setien’s position.
Barcelona are yet to make an official announcement with reports saying an official announcement will be made today, Monday August 17 during a press conference.
Setien only replaced Ernesto Valverde in January but his failure to win LaLiga and the 8-2 Bayern Munich humiliation only quickened his sack following a public fall out with Lionel Messi this season.
The 8-2 demolition of Barca by Bayern in the Champions League quarter-final
was one of the most embarrassing in the proud Catalan club’s 121-year history.
