Barcelona Names New Interim Manager

Barcelona Names New Interim Manager.

Barcelona B boss Sergi Barjuan has been named interim head coach of the first team at the Nou Camp after the Spanish giant sacked Ronald Koeman last night after his loss to Rayo Vallecano.

According to multiple reports, the club are trying to get a deal settled for their former club legend and current Al-Sadd boss Xavi as the permanent replacement for the Dutchman. But while they’re still working on doing that, they have promoted the current team B manager to first team duties prior to when they’d get Xavi’s deal done. 

A club statement read: “FC Barcelona hereby announces that Sergi Barjuan, the current coach of Barca B, shall be taking provisional charge of the technical management of the senior squad. “His interim position as first-team head coach shall end as soon as the club has hired a full-time head coach to replace the dismissed Ronald Koeman. “FC Barcelona president Joan Laporta shall be officially introducing Sergi Barjuan to the first-team squad this afternoon before the training session at the Ciutat Esportiva.”

Koeman enjoyed a great career at Camp Nou as a player, winning four LaLiga titles and the European Cup during a trophy-laden spell at the beginning of the 1990 couldn’t reciprocate that great time as coach leaving Barcelona sitting currently at ninth place and six point behind La Liga leaders Real Madrid after 10 games.
