“I want to thank President Josep Maria Bartomeu and the Board of Directors for the opportunity to coach the first team and their trust throughout this time.

‘I also want to thank all the people I have worked with at the club for their support and how they have treated me during the two and a half seasons, especially those who work in and around the first team and with whom I have shared so many moments in the Ciutat Esportiva and during outings.

‘Of course I want to thank the players for all their efforts with which we can claim four trophies together. From this day on, I wish them all the luck in the world and also the new coach Quique Setien. The best for everyone. “

Valverde was hunted by Barcelona supporters in Saudi Arabia during the recent Spanish Super Cup and when they were defeated by Atletico Madrid last Thursday in the semi-final, the club decided to replace the 55-year-old and went for Setien after being rejected by Xavi .

Barcelona is at the top of the Spanish top flight on goal difference and Valverde, who had won the previous two Spanish titles, had also led them to the Champions League qualification as group winners.
