Barcelona’s financial situation is far from ideal. In recent years, the club has been accused of signing players for exorbitant prices, resulting in the renewal of expensive contracts with Leo Messi on a regular basis. However, the money was not simply spent on the field.
Catalans have also spent a lot of money on the bench. Of the last four coaches, including Xavi, 33 million euros have been spent on them, either through dismissal or signing.
Ernesto Valverde received 11 million euros in unemployment pay. And it would be very bad, as he agreed to give up one year on his salary. Quique Setien has been next and is still waiting for the four million euros he owes.
Ronald Koeman was the last manager to be fired. The Dutchman will receive 13 million euros for the rest of his contract and has now signed Xavi Hernandez.
The former Al Sadd manager also squandered the club’s money. Five million euros is what the team should pay the Qatari in the future which will make it 33 million to four coaches.
