Barcelona parted ways with Ernesto Valverde following a series of poor performances from the Catalans. Valverde joined Barcelona in 2017 to replace Luis Enrique. The Spaniard did well in the league as he won two LaLiga titles with Barcelona. Valverde faced a lot of criticism for Barcelona's poor performance in the UEFA Champions League last season as the team squandered a 3-0 first-leg advantage against Liverpool in the semi-final. Recently,  Barcelona's loss against Atletico Madrid in the Spanish Super Cup was the final nail in the coffin for the manager.

Barcelona initially wanted to get in former player Xavi as Ernesto Valverde's replacement, but the Spanish midfielder denied the offer due to unknown reasons. However, some reports suggest that Xavi wants to manage Barcelona from the start of the new season. Quique Setien's spell till the end of the season will be measured by Barcelona's performance in the Champions League. Barcelona are currently on the top of the LaLiga 2019-20 table and will face Serie A side Napoli in the Round of 16 in the Champions Leauge. Quique Setien will lead Barcelona for the first time against Granada on LaLiga Matchday 20.
