Here is Clotet posting about commentating on the Barcelona clash on his personal Twitter account.

Clotet managed in the youth setup at Espanyol prior to joining Monk at Swansea in 2013, before continuing his relationship with the highly-rated coach at Elland Road.

The duo have guided the Yorkshire giants to promotion hopefuls this season, most recently guiding them to four wins in their last five games.

As a result the Whites are fifth in the Championship table on 38 points from 22 encounters going into a critical and busy festive period.

Monk’s side travel to Deepdale to take on Simon Grayson’s Preston North End on Boxing Day, before a mouth-watering tie against Steve Bruce’s Aston Villa.
