Athletic Bilbao Boss Valverde Exits Club Amid Links To Barcelona

Athletic Bilbao have announced that Coach Ernesto Valverde is leaving the club, all-but-certainly freeing him up for Barcelona.
The development comes just two days after speculation emerged that Valverde had agreed to a two-year contract to succeed Luis Enrique at Barca.
“Ernesto Valverde will not stay on as coach of the Athletic Club first team for the 2017-18 campaign,” read a statement on Los Leones’ official website.

“The coach, accompanied by President Josu Urrutia, will appear before the media on Wednesday May 24 at 12:00 [CET] in the Press room at San Mames.”
The 53-year-old returned to Athletic for his second spell at the helm in 2013 and took the side into Europe in each of his first three seasons, including a Champions League run during 2014-15.
