Laporta continues with its clean

The work of García Pimienta, coach of the subsidiary, had been highly valued these years, but the president has decided to relieve him.


Bomb in the Barça subsidiary. As announced by ESPN and Mundo Deportivo, Joan Laporta, Barça president, continues his clean-up and this Friday fired Francisco Javier García Pimienta, coach of Barça B, whose work had been highly valued but who has failed in his attempt to promote the team the last two seasons. Aureli and Àlex García, his assistants, will not continue at the club either. At the moment, it has not transpired who will be the replacement, although Sergi Barjuán sounds. But the ascent phases have weighed. "Losing with me will have consequences," Laporta said a couple of weeks ago. Hours after ESPN and Mundo Deportivo reported the dismissal, Barça made it official with the following statement: "FC Barcelona has communicated to Francisco Javier García Pimienta that he is terminating his contract. The Club publicly expresses its gratitude to García Pimienta for his professionalism , the commitment, dedication and always positive and close treatment that he has always shown towards all the estates that make up the Barça family, and wishes him luck and success in the future ".

Laporta's decision, deep down, should not be so strange. Except for Ronald Koeman and Saras Jasikevicius, Laporta has already informed the coaches of the handball and futsal sections (Pascual and Andreu Plaza) that they will not continue. The section managers have not followed either (Nacho Rodríguez, Barrufet ...).

The restructuring of the subsidiary will be one of the first challenges for Jordi Cruyff, who should be the one who chooses the coach over Mateu Alemany and Ramon Planes, whose work is more specific to grassroots football. Jordi could coordinate with José Ramón Alexanco, new head of the quarry to replace Kluivert.
