FC BarcelonaThe Extremaduran conditions his decision to the titles
ANDrnesto Valverde is a sensible guy. He knows that the future of the coaches is totally conditioned by the results he gets, much more if it is a club like Barcelona, in which winning titles at the end of the season is an obligation. This is how the Barça coach justifies hisindefiniteat the time of referring to whether he will remain on the bench of Barça next season. However, there are other factors to consider that go beyond the results. Factors that in the past made winning coaches, like Guardiola or Luis Enrique, decide to leave Barcelona.
The famous wear produced by the position of coach culé, the pressure of the environment and the management of a wardrobe full of stars takes its toll on even the best. Valverde is no different in this regard, although he publicly says that he has not noticed fatigue since he leads Barça.
The case is that, although from the club they have assured that the technician has a contract until 2020 and that if one of the parties decides to rescind it before, he would have to pay compensation, Valverde's speech implies that his decision is not clear. He does not know if he will continue another season in Can Barça.
So things,What Barcelona does not want is for this to become a soap opera and, above all, to have time in case it has to sweep the market in search of a substitute. In this way, from the club they trust that the Extremaduran does not spend much time removing the margarita and tells them where the shots can go, at most, between February and March.
In this sense,we must remember that his predecessors had already communicated their intentions at this point, even if only internally. Another thing is the time that is expected to make an announcement. And, in case Valverde's decision was to leave, it could be counterproductive if it were known too soon. It would make the environment dull when all the titles are still to be decided and it could affect their relationship with the players.
