Barcelona manager, Valverde drops bombshell on his future

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde says a deal for Jeisson Murillo was due to an "emergency situation".

Valverde, who won the title last season with the Catalan club, has a contract with Barca running until 2020 - yet an option remains in place for this to be terminated a year early, pending performances.

Speaking about Messi to Barca TV, head coach Valverde said: "What I'd most highlight about Leo Messi is his huge sense of responsibility for the team". "I never think too far ahead, I want everybody to happy with my job".

"If you don't win the league, everyone looks at the coach because it is marked like that".
