Reports: Martino to Leave Barca in the Summer?

MOST COMMENTED

Barcelona on Tuesday admitted that head coach Gerardo Martino has a clause in his contract that would allow him to leave this summer, while at the same time insisting that the Argentine will remain in charge of the club next season. Martino took over at Barca on short notice last summer, after former coach Tito Vilanova was forced to step down due to his battle with cancer. The 51-year-old signed a two-year deal, but his position has come into question now that the Catalan giant has suffered three losses in the league since the start of the year.

While Barca maintains that Martino is going nowhere, TV show Esport 3 on Monday claimed that the former Newell’s Old Boys boss has already told his staff that he is moving on at the end of the season. AS claims he could take over as Argentina coach after the 2014 World Cup, while BeIN Sport claims that unnamed clubs in the United Arab Emirates and Qatar have offered him a job. Barca on Tuesday confirmed to ESPN that separate release clauses exists for Martino and the reigning Spanish champion. Martino himself has refused to comment on the speculation.
