Ernesto Valverde oversaw Barcelona training on Monday morning as speculation about his future at the club continues to rage.

The 55-year-old reportedly arrived at the club hours before the session was due to start but was then pictured out on the field with the squad.

Speculation is rife that Valverde may lose his job today, and there is a board meeting scheduled for this afternoon which may yield a decision one way or the other.

Meanwhile, Barcelona offered some promising news on the injury front.

Midfielder Arthur was back and took part in the session, while Marc-Andre ter Stegen was also involved as he recovers from knee trouble.

Jean-Clair Todibo was absent “with club permission” and is reportedly in Germany ahead of sealing a loan move to Schalke.
