Quique Setien has been appointed as the new coach for the  Spanish champions Barcelona following the sack of Ernesto Valverde.

The decision to remove Valverde was confirmed following a board meeting that lasted more than four hours at Camp Nou on Monday afternoon.

Barca are top of La Liga but have won only one of their last five matches. Valverde is the first coach the club has sacked mid-season since Louis van Gaal in 2003.
