FC Barcelona’s head coach search – Laurent Blanc and Phillip Cocu


Laurent Blanc was seemingly enjoying his sabbatical. He visited Getxo, a place in Bilbao and the media is erupting. Blanc was unceremoniously sacked by Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser al-Khelaifi after his failure to do well in Europe. He won 6 trophies in his three-year tenure but that did not satisfy the Qatari magnate. But he might be on the lookout for a job in La Liga. The Spanish top-flight is set to undergo several managerial changes next season. Luis Enrique has already announced that he will be leaving, while Ernesto Valverde’s future is up in the air. Incidentally, Valverde is the favourite for the Barcelona manager’s job and Blanc was in Bilbao. Blanc might apply for the Barcelona job, and if it is rejected and Valverde succeeds Lucho, the manager’s seat at the San Mames is up for grabs.
