Barcelona fans are outraged after Friday’s loss to Athletic Bilbao at San Mames and are demanding for an immediate ouster of their coach Ernesto Valverde.

Lionel Messi was sorely missed as a lucklustre Barca were downed by their hosts when substitute Aritz Aduriz smashed home a scintillating scissor-kick goal in the 89th-minute just after coming into the match to hand Bilbao all three points and Barca a shock loss to start the season.

Messi was out after suffering a calf injury in training before his side’s brief pre-season tour of the United States and had not yet returned to full training a day before his side visited Athletic.
