Barcelona have sacked coach Ernesto Valverde after two-and-a-half years at the Nou Camp.

He has been replaced by Quique Setien, who will be in charge until June 2022.

Barca are currently top of La Liga but have won only one of their last five matches.

Valverde is the first coach the club has sacked mid-season since Louis van Gaal in 2003.
