Iniesta Slams Barça Valverde Treatment

Andrés Iniesta has given his take on the coaching situation at Barcelona and believes the club have shown a lack of respect to Ernesto Valverde.

The 35-year-old gave an interview on Spanish radio channel Onda Cero, where he discussed the current situation at Barcelona regarding the coaching position.

“What comes to my mind is that the way everything is being done is a bit ugly.

‘’I think that there should always be respect for the coach… The boss’s situation position has been left very weakened.

 “My relationship with the boss [Valverde] is very good. During the year we have been talking some times.

‘’Really beyond whether we like the coach or not, I think the situation is not pleasant for anyone: the coach, the team or the fans.’’

When asked about Xavi and Koeman as possible future Barça coaches, he said: “There is a case for everyone.

‘’The case of Guardiola who was at Barça B and then he took over the first team … The one who knows best is Xavi, he will have analyzed all the variables that there can be and let's see what happens.

‘’Koeman has a lot of experience as a coach and Xavi is starting out now. But a lot of times experience counts for nothing. Both of them have been at Barça and know the club.”
