Ernesto Valverde happy with new Barcelona deal

Ernesto Valverde is happy with his new deal at Barcelona.

The new contract will see the Spanish coach stay in Catalonia contractually until the end of the 2019/20 season, although there is an embedded option for him to remain in place for a further season after that, which would take his stay in Barcelona to four seasons.

"The only way you can reach four years here is by winning titles," he explained in his pre-match press conference.

"We're obliged to win and to win titles, it's the only way this club can be, I'm clear about that.

"When you are given more time in a job, it's because you've done well."
