Barcelona chief Robert delivers update on coach search

Barcelona sporting director Robert Fernandez has delivered an update on their coaching search.

The plan to replace Luis Enrique is now well underway.

Discussing current assistant Juan Carlos Unzue, the director revealed that his chances do not depend on the current results and that the priority is that he suits the job's requirements.

"[Unzue] is someone who knows the club really well, including the system and the players, so he is prepared," Fernandez said.

"[Ernesto] Valverde has had several good seasons, not just at Athletic Club.

"It is not true that [Massimiliano Allegri] is coming."
