Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde says that he has no concerns about his immediate future at Camp Nou.

Manager Ernesto Valverde has said that he has the backing of the Barcelona board, despite an inconsistent start to the season.

While Barcelona remain in second position in the La Liga standings, the Catalan giants have suffered three defeats in 11 matches, while also struggling to impress in the Champions League.

However, despite calls for his exit, Valverde feels that he will remain in the dugout at Camp Nou after a recent meeting with president Josep Maria Bartomeu.

Quizzed on whether he was concerned about his future, Valverde told reporters: "No. Whether I understand it or not, it is how it is. I haven't much more to say. If the game had gone better, everyone would be more relaxed. We have to accept the things as they come. Everything can change for the better."

When asked about meeting with Bartomeu, Valverde added: "I ate with him, and he has always supported me. I feel supported."

A recent report has claimed that the Barcelona first-team squad want Valverde to stay at the club.
