Barcelona will name Luis Enrique's successor on May 29, club president Josep Maria Bartomeu has revealed.

Sunday's thrilling 4-2 win over Eibar was Luis Enrique's final Camp Nou game at the helm, with Barca surrendering the La Liga title to Real Madrid despite coming from 2-0 down.

He still has next weekend's Copa del Rey final against Alaves to come, but it appears the next incumbent has already been lined up, with Athletic Bilbao coach Ernesto Valverde reported to be the one.

"On Monday 29 May we will announce the new coach," Bartomeu told Barca TV .

"We thank Luis Enrique for the effort he has put in [and] the demands he placed on himself. The door is open. Now we have the Copa."
