While there was not expected to be any problems, an anticipated statement which was expected to confirm both Valverde’s sacking and Setien’s appointment was twice delayed.

Barcelona had also contacted Xavi about the possibility of taking over, with the club legend making it clear he would be open to it in the summer.

That led to strong suggestions Setien would join on a short-term deal, leaving the door open for Xavi to take over at the end of the season.

But Barcelona confirmed the 61-year-old had agreed terms on a deal keeping him at the Nou Camp until June 2022.
