FC Barcelona – The Management Team

FC Barcelona Management Team 2019-20

Here we look at the FC Barcelona Management Team 2019-20. Who are the people responsible for managing the FC Barcelona squad? The Management team is made up of all types of management including developments, assistants, scouting etc. There are also a number of former Barcelona players who help run the club.

The FC Barcelona Management team

Why do Barcelona flip through managers so often? Ever since Josep Maria Bartomeu’s takeover at Barcelona, Camp Nou has become a breeding ground for managers who have come and gone.

The first full-time manager for Barcelona was John Barrow. He was signed by the founder of Barcelona, and then director, Joan Gamper, and was dismissed four months later without winning a title.

Pep Guardiola is the most successful manager in terms of trophies. Guardiola was also the most successful manager in terms of trophies per year. In 2009, Guardiola’s first year, Barcelona became the first club in Spain to win the treble of La Liga, Copa del Rey, and Champions League.

Barcelona Management Team – Current manager

On 29 May 2017, Valverde replaced Luis Enrique as the new Barcelona manager. His spell began with defeat as rivals Real Madrid won both legs of the Spanish Supercup at the season’s outset.

However, the team then went on a 29-match unbeaten run in all competitions from 20 August 2017 until 17 January 2018, when they lost to Espanyol in the first leg of the quarter-finals of the Spanish Cup (also the club’s first defeat at the RCDE Stadium, home of their neighbours, since its 2009 opening).

Champions League progress

Barca recovered to progress in that tie as part of another sequence of 15 matches without defeat, before a loss to A.S. Roma in the last-eight stage of the UEFA Champions League on 10 April, with the final 3–0 meaning the Italians progressed on the away goals rule.

Barcelona remained undefeated for 43 matches in the Spanish League only to lose in their penultimate game of the campaign on 13 May 2018, having rested Lionel Messi for the trip to Levante UD – they were beaten 5–4 by the hosts. In February 2019, Valverde signed a new one-year contract extension.

Valverde effect

He led his team to their first Champions League semi-final after a gap of three years, winning 3–0 at home against Liverpool but being downed 0–4 at Anfield in the second leg.
