Barcelona CEO Oscar Grau says manager Ernesto Valverde has the complete backing of the club.

Grau was talking at a new conference on Tuesday where the club presented their annual accounts for the 2017/18 season and the budget for the 2018/19.

“There’s complete confidence in Valverde,” he said.

“The season’s long, don’t forget. We are confident that we will achieve our objectives.”

Barcelona also confirmed they expect a revenue of €960m this season and detailed salary costs.

There’s a lot of focus on Valverde at the moment after three games without a win and some poor performances, and the pressure will be on to get a win against Tottenham on Wednesday.
