Bartomeu confirms Setien's sacking to Spanish radio

Baku, August 17, AZERTAC

It was widely expected that Quique Setien had coached his last game for Barcelona and the Catalan club's president Josep Maria Bartomeu has confirmed that the coach won't be staying on, according to Marca.

After having a meeting with Eric Abidal and Ramon Planes on Sunday, Bartomeu admitted this to a reporter for Spanish radio.

"He's out," the president told journalist Victor Navarro, as Navarro explained for the Cadena Cope radio station.

An official club announcement is expected soon, with Ronald Koeman the frontrunner to take over.
