With things going well, Barcelona have extended the contract of coach Ernesto Valverde until the end of next season, with the option of a further year.

There have been nigh-on constant discontented rumblings over Valverde ever since his arrival in 2017, the season in which he won a La Liga and Copa Del Rey double.

However, Barca have sought to cement the ex-Valencia boss’ position in the Camp Nou dugout by offering him improved terms.

The club announced the news on social media only to be met with a barrage of righteous indignation from “fans” clearly upset by the retention of a manager who has their side six points clear at the top of the league.

What followed was an entirely predictable deluge of reaction gifs, exaggerated despair, wanting-to-die-themed memes and #ValverdeOut hashtags, such is football fandom in 2019 – faux hysteria in the quest for internet points.

Among the very worst, most asinine online supporters (let’s face it, these creatures aren’t attending matches week in, week out), Barca have proved once again that they are right down there.

    To be fair, a lot of Catalan fans are upset too. He might get results but the whole system of bringing in players that are 30+ years old rather than promoting canteranos and playing boring football and losing ‘easy’ games hasn’t sat well with people.

    I’ve been watching Barcelona for 15 years and this year is the first time I have ever been totally bored watching games and stopped playing attention and done something else.
