Alex Keble takes a look at the five main contenders to replace Luis Enrique as Barcelona manager, predicting that either Jorge Sampaoli or Ernesto Valverde will take the reins - and both are worth a bet

"Ideally, the board want someone who is both a former player and an attack-minded tactician. No such candidate is currently available. The next Barca manager will be one or the other - tactically aligned or historically connected - but the club's recent managerial history offers us few clues as to which way they will swing."
