Barcelona coach Valverde: Eusebio right man in charge of Girona

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde has no doubts Eusebio Sacristan is the right man in charge of Girona.

Girona host Barca on Sunday.

Having played for Barça and then coached the club's B team, Eusebio knows a lot about the Catalan club's playing style.

"Having a coach like Eusebio, who knows our philosophy in detail, is an advantage for them," Valverde said in a press conference on Saturday.

Girona lost 6-1 at Camp Nou earlier this year under Pablo Machin but Valverde expects a different game when the two teams meet on Sunday.

"I don't remember a lot about last season's game but I have the feeling that they maybe played a little high and left space behind and we were able to take advantage of that," he added.

"Perhaps, this time they will play a bit deeper. There has been a change (in management) … I don't remember loads about last year's game, but maybe they left space. But they came in good form and it's the same again this year."
