Things have not been good for Barcelona Football Club this last week. First they lost to Real Madrid which effectively means they will not win the league this year, then they lost out to Chelsea in the Champions’ League and now their coach says he will be leaving at the end of this season.
In his statement to the press, he said that four years as coach was enough. The drive that he had has gone and he needs a rest. Quite what that says about a manager like Alex Ferguson who took over at Manchester United in 1986 and has led the team to countless victories since I don’t know. Still, the decision has been taken and Barcelona will enter a new phase with a new coach.
