Barcelona fired coach Quique Setien on Monday, three days after the teams humiliating 8-2 loss to Bayern Munich in the quarterfinals of the Champions League.
The decision was announced by the club after an urgent board meeting summoned by president Josep Bartomeu in Barcelona.
A replacement to Setin was not immediately announced but Spanish media said Dutch coach Ronald Koeman was the front-runner to take charge. The former Barcelona defender was reportedly already in Barcelona.
