Barcelona was, at one time, the best team in the world. Some even argued that Pep Guardiola's side was one of the greatest of all-time. However, since his departure, the club has slowly gone downhill.

The late Tito Vilanova did the best he could, winning a league title in the 2012-13 campaign. His eventual replacement, Gerardo Martino, couldn't steer the ship back on a winning course.
