His achievements

Ernesto Valverde had helped Barcelona win UEFA Cup Winners' Cup and Copa del Rey during his time with the Club, also not failing to impress since taking charge at Athletic Bilbao.

With four successive top-seven finishes, a Copa del Rey final and the quarterfinals of the Europa League, the former Espanyol, Olympiakos, Villarreal and Valencia boss also helped Athletic lift their first silverware in three decades when he masterminded a 5-1 aggregate defeat of Barca to win the 2015 Spanish Super Cup.

Luis Enrique will be stepping down after winning eight trophies at Barcelona and still in the process of adding a Copa del Rey in the coming final with Alaves.
