Barcelona are in a transitional stage currently with the club trying out new players, new tactics, and trusting more in their youths. However, every team that is going through a massive transition, needs a superb manager who can direct the team on to the right path. The Catalans tried it with their club legend, Ronald Koeman, however, the former Everton manager has not been able to get consistency from his team.

The Catalans this season had a rollercoaster of a ride. Their beginning to the season was horrible and it was one of the worst openings in their history. However, through sheer dedication and determination, he managed to bring the team back into the title race near the end of the season. However, the title race then slipped out of their hands after suffering a loss to Real Madrid and later on to Granda and Celta Vigo. These defeats pushed them out of the title race.

The Blaugranas did manage to lift the Copa del Rey this season and in a very convincing manner however, they should have rightfully lifted two trophies this season, the Copa del Rey and the Supercopa de Espana. They lost the latter one to the same team they demolished in the Copa del Rey final, which sums up the season for the club. Barcelona has been really inconsistent and their players have been inconsistent as well. Thus for them to find a proper identity and get consistent results, they need a new manager and these are the three managers who could provide the club a new identity.
