Coach Valverde leaving Athletic Bilbao

"Jose Angel Ziganda will be the new coach of Athletic Club for the next two seasons", a statement from the LaLiga outfit confirmed.

Sport say the signing of the midfielder would have Valverde's "complete and total support" and that he was never happy the Basque club sanctioned his sale.

Spanish publication Sport claim the former Athletic Bilbao boss is a big admirer of the midfielder and believes he can make a difference at Barca.

"Ernesto Valverde has done a great job with Athletic Bilbao over the last few years", he said. "I haven't reached an agreement with any one club yet, but I do have an offer from an important club".

Now the situation is different and I have to consider whether I start a new project in another club. When I first came here I thought I would only remain for two years.

Athletic said Tuesday that the coach will give more details about his departure in a news conference on Wednesday.

However, he has coached Bilbao Athletic, the club's B team, over the past six seasons and led them to promotion to the second tier in the 2014/15 campaign.

Asked about Barcelona's reported interest in signing him, he said: "I can not confirm it, I'm sorry". "I think my decision is for the best for everybody". "I can do what I want".

He continued: "There is a lot of speculation regarding my future but, I have to say it clearly, I haven't committed myself to any team".
