Barcelona won the Copa del Rey (King’s Cup), the Spanish Championship, and hired a new coach. Ernesto Valverde is 53 years old; he left Athletic of Bilbao to replace Luis Enrique. Luis coached the Catalan team for the last three years. He is leaving the club after winning nine  titles in 13 competitions.

Barcelona’s three stars, Lionel Messi, Neymar, and Luis Suárez, have a style that is compatible with Valverde. In the last season under Valverde’s leadership, Athletic Bilbao placed seventh in the Spanish Championship.

Valverde’s nickname is Txingurri (ant in Basque). He was the coach for Olympiakos, Villarreal, Valencia, and Espanyol. Valverde is also a photographer. He studied at the Institut d’Estudis Fotografics de Catalunya and published a book of photographs called “Medio Tempo”. The book has pictures taken in Athens, Greece where he coached the Olympiakos team.
