Barcelona have four options to replace Quique Setien - report

Head coach Quique Setien of FC Barcelona gestures prior to the UEFA Champions League round of 16 first leg match between SSC Napoli and FC Barcelona at Stadio San Paolo on February 25, 2020 in Naples, Italy.

Quique Setien is expected to be relieved of his duties as Barcelona manager in the coming days, and the club are reportedly have four candidates in mind.

According to Sport, Xavi is not on the list because he’s simply not interested in returning to the Camp Nou now (while Josep Maria Bartomeu is still around basically).

The report reckons that Mauricio Pochettino is still the early favorite and believe the ex-Spurs boss is “the best prepared for the change of cycle Barca need.”

Yet there are a few other names under consideration too. Ronald Koeman’s name has cropped up even though he’s previously said he’s committed to the Netherlands for now.

Former Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri is also on the list as well as former striker Thierry Henry, who is currently coach of MLS side Montreal Impact.

The Barcelona board are reportedly due to meet on Monday to discuss the fallout from Friday’s match and who should coach the club next season.
