Gerardo ‘Tata’ Martino will be the next Barcelona coach after reaching an agreement with the club this afternoon, Monday, by videoconference. The Argentine spoke to club bosses yesterday and finalised the move today, with the conversation focussing on his team of assistants who will join him. He has signed for three years.
He will travel to Barcelona tomorrow, but won't go with the team to Munich, for the friendly against Pep Guardiola's Bayern on Wednesday.
Martino will bring with him his assistant from Newell's Old Boys Jorge Pautasso. He will also bring with him physical trainer Paulorrosso.
