FC Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde was honoured in style tonight at the Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium in Piraeus, where he led Olympiacos to glittering success in two separate spells in charge at the club, winning three Greek Super Leagues and a couple of national cups as well.

Before kick-off in tonight’s Champions League fixture, two directors of the home club presented him with a laurel-shaped insignia and the fans welcomed him into the stadium with a heartfelt standing ovation and a banner saying ‘Thank you for everything Valverde”.
