Gerardo Martino has stepped down as Barcelona coach after they missed out on the Primera Division title in a 1-1 draw with champions Atletico Madrid.

Martino had been widely expected to leave, win or lose in Saturday evening's crunch clash at the Nou Camp, and Barca confirmed the news as his post-match press conference was beginning.

"Martino has announced that, by mutual agreement with the club, he ceases to be the coach of FC Barcelona," the club said on their Twitter account.
