BARCELONA – Until a few weeks ago, Barcelona were in the running for the triple and the enthusiasm was skyrocketing, then came the shocking defeat of Liverpool and the team also collapsed in the Spanish Cup, against Valencia, taking home just a "miserable" scudetto. This disastrous ending has cost Valverde the bench. Now Barcelona will have to choose its replacement. The former Juventus Massimiliano Allegri is also in the race.
Barcelona, the list of candidates for the blaugrana bench is really long.
Allegri boasts the favors of the prediction because he is back from a legendary streak, of five consecutive championships with Juventus. His calm style is very popular with the Barcelona management. Allegri also did well in the Champions League, reaching two finals with a team that was lower than the other big names in European football. But obviously Allegri is not the only candidate for a prestigious bench like that of Barcelona.
Via Valverde, the road to succession opens. Many candidates: from Xavi (although the former Blaugrana midfielder has just been officially named Al Sadd's coach ) in Koeman (ct Holland) via Roberto Martinez (ct Belgium) and Ten Hag (Ajax) to reach Max Allegri , formerly approached the Catalan bench (source Sport Mediaset).
