Valverde unsure over Barcelona future

An apologetic Ernesto Valverde offered no excuses after Barcelona’s stunning Champions League semi-final loss to Liverpool on Tuesday and admitted that he is unsure over his future with the club.

The La Liga champions suffered an incredible 4-0 loss at Anfield and were dumped out of the Champions League at the semi-final stage despite taking a 3-0 first-leg win.

Valverde’s team gave up a 4-1 first-leg lead against Roma in the quarter-finals last season, and the manager was in no mood to pass the blame after a second epic collapse in Europe.

“How does it affect my future? I do not know, the truth is that I did not have time to think about many things, but the coach has to take responsibility,” he told Movistar Plus​.

The Barcelona boss was also stunned by the winning goal from Liverpool, a quick corner netted by Divock Origi as Barcelona’s defenders failed to react.

“An incredible goal has taken us out of the tie,” he told a post-match news conference.
