Almost Two Years of Unemployment, Ex-Barcelona Coach Gets Work Soon

By db-admin – Former Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde is rumored to be getting a new job. That was after Valverde had been out of work for almost two years.

He has coached Athletic Bilbao, Espanyol, Olimpiakos, Villarreal, Valencia, to Barcelona with peak success in winning two La Liga titles, one Copa del Rey and the Spanish Super Cup.

Valverde (57 years) has been out of work for two years and is said to be moving closer to the Premier League. According to a report from the Telegraph, Valverde has a great chance of replacing Marcelo Bielsa at Leeds United.

Bielsa’s contract expires in June 2022 and there is a chance he will be sacked sooner following a series of poor results in the Premier League, although Bielsa played a big part in bringing Leeds to the Premier League and staying until now.

Not only Valverde, Leeds also prepared Jesse Marsch, Carlos Corberan, to Diego Martinez as an alternative to Bielsa if they failed to recruit Valverde.

Valverde’s name previously appeared when Manchester United looked for an interim manager to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Valverde has an efficient coaching method depending on the team he has.

At Barcelona, ​​Valverde often uses the 4-4-2 tactic as an alternative if the 4-3-3 formation doesn’t work well. Valverde also relies on possession of the ball in his game which is accompanied by playing efficiency.
