Boss Ernesto Valverde: ‘I do not know if I will be at Barcelona next season’

Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde has admitted he does not know if he will still be coaching the club next season: “I do not know my future.”

The 54-year-old won both La Liga and the Copa del Rey in his first season in charge of the club and added the Spanish Super Cup this campaign, while his side currently top La Liga at the halfway stage.

“Next season? I do not know my future or what I will be doing at that stage,” Valverde told Barcelona TV.

“In football you never know what will happen, things are fluid and you can never allow yourself to think in the long term.

“When you are in this business, two months is a very long time, thoughts and feelings change on individual results – if you win things are great, if you lose everyone is sad and talking about you.

“I want everyone to be happy with my work and the work of my staff and my players, but in football there are no guarantees.

“If we do not meet our objectives – domestically and in Europe – people will look at the Coach, it is the way things are.”
