QUIQUE SETIEN has been sacked by Barcelona, the club's president allegedly confirmed.

He spoke with Spanish outlet Cadena COPE following a meeting with the Barca board, including Eric Abidal.

Bartomeu is believed to have said: "He is out," when asked about Setien's position.

Barcelona are yet to make an official announcement.

However, a press conference is expected to take place on Monday to do so with Bartomeu - under pressure to call a presidential election - chairing a board meeting this morning.

Setien only replaced Ernesto Valverde in January.

But failure to win LaLiga and the 8-2 Bayern Munich humiliation meant his time was up.

Setien could only watch on helplessly as the German giants - including Philippe Coutinho, on loan from Barca - tore his side to shreds in the Champions League quarter-final.

The result was one of the most embarrassing in the proud Catalan club's 121-year history.
