Barcelona sack manager Quique Setien after Bayern thrashing

Barcelona have sacked manager Quique Setien, three days after his side’s humiliating 8-2 defeat by Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

The decision to dismiss Setien was announced after a board meeting, but sources say it had already been made prior to the Bayern game.

Netherlands manager Ronald Koeman, who played for the Catalan giants between 1989 and 1995, is set to replace Setien at the Nou Camp.

Former Real Betis manager Setien, 61, was appointed in January and took charge for just 25 matches.

Setien, who replaced Ernesto Valverde at the Nou Camp, had said after the defeat that it was “time for us to review and take the decisions which are needed for the future”.

After he was sacked on Monday, Barcelona said: “This is the first decision within a wider restructuring of the first team.”

The club also announced next year’s presidential elections, scheduled for June, will be brought forward to March 15.
