“After beating Levante 1-0 at the Camp Nou, FC Barcelona lifted its 26th league title. An eighth domestic championship in the last eleven years, and the tenth for Lionel Messi. It’s also the second in two seasons for Ernesto Valverde, a goal reached by only five coaches previously in the history of the club.
The coach from Viandar de la Vera has won the 2017/18 and 2018/19 league titles, a record that only Luis Enrique Martínez, Josep Guardiola, Louis van Gaal, Helenio Herrera and Enrique Fernández can match.
