There’s a first for everything, and at Barcelona, fans gushing over Ernesto Valverde’s tactics and praising their manager is definitely a rare sight.
The Blaugrana coach is often under attack from many fans, who simply don’t want him at the club and are making their voices heard almost on a daily basis.
Indeed, Barca are currently fourth in La Liga, having won four, drawn one and lost two of their opening seven games. They are two points behind leaders Real Madrid.

But every manager and every player usually has both supporters and haters, such is the way of football.
Still, Valverde will be very happy to see that, for once, he has many Barcelona fans on his side, praising him for his tactics and supporting his work following their 2-1 win over Inter Milan.
The Blaugrana manager made the right call by subbing in Arturo Vidal in the second half. The Chilean replaced Sergio Busquets and then assisted his side’s equaliser.
In many ways, that was the turning point of the match and it was all due to Valverde’s bold decision to take off a key player for a rather impactful sub.
After the clash, many of the fans were satisfied with those decisions and they made sure to post messages and replies on social media and Twitter.
