Who was to blame for Barcelona collapse

Barcelona Sporting Club was innovated on 1 May 1925, by Eutimio Pérez, a Spanish emigrant who named the club after his home megacity of Barcelona. Since also, Barcelona Sporting Club has come the most popular club in the country. The club holds a long-standing contest with Emelec, where matches between the two brigades are considered the most important Derby in Ecuador, generally appertained to as"El Clásico del Astillero". The club plays their home matches in Estadio Monumental Banco Pichincha, the largest colosseum in the country. 

Barcelona Sporting Club is the most successful football platoon in Ecuador, having won the Serie A title a record 16 times, most lately in 2020. They've also won six indigeous titles (five in the professional period), and were the first Ecuadorian club to make it to the Copa Libertadores tests, but lost on both occasions.

Ernesto Valverde presided over what Spanish newspaper Diario Sport described as the “biggest embarrassment in the club’s history”.

If the coach has any supporters left at this point, they will point to the two league titles won during his reign. Impressive achievements, sure, but they must be viewed within the general context of Barca’s eight title triumphs in 11 years.

Meanwhile, president Josep Maria Bartomeu did not want to back Valverde, just saying everything would be looked at when the heat of the moment has subsided.

The coach should not be sacked now - that would be senseless - but despite his recent contract extension, the sensible and most likely solution is that Valverde and Barcelona mutually agree to part ways in the summer, with the Copa del Rey final as his last hurrah.

Barcelona is currently suffering numerous embarrassing defeats even from unexpected football clubs. They management is now constantly changing coaches. But the question is who to blame, the management, the footballers themselves or the coach.
