The Club thank Zubizarreta for his contribution, dedication and professionalism over the last four years
The FC Barcelona President Josep Maria Bartomeu has decided to terminate as of today the contract of the Club’s Director of Football, Andoni Zubizarreta.

The President, in the name of the Club, thanks Andoni Zubizarreta for his contribution, dedication and professionalism over the last four years in his role at the head of the Club’s football area.

FC Barcelona goalkeeper between 1986 and 1994, the man from Vitoria in the Basque Country returned to the Club in July 2010 to take up the role of Director of Football.

good news, but all is not done yet. The board needs elections soon and somebody (maybe Laporta) needs to get in on this and prise everything away from them so that we can rebuild.

No sane person would want to take the job right now. Wonder who they will announce as his replacement.

Top contenders are Sevilla's Monchi and Fiorentina's Prade

My dream: Sabatini

No one who is capable should take the job right now because after elections he will be jobless anyway.

My dream: Some scrub right now and after elections Monchi with Puyol as his assistant under Laporta.

Yeah I agree. Said the same thing in the GS. Whoever gets hired now will be out of a job next year.

Sabatini >>>> Monchi though

Sabatini would be a dream as well, not sure if he would leave Roma.

yes but both the club and Messi on his fb have stated that this is because of a stomach flu. Catalán media saying this is because of a clash of egos with LE.

Correction. We are not after Fiorentina's Prade but after his right-hand man, a Spaniard named Eduardo Macia. His experience:

Sporting director Valencia, ???-2006
Scouting head Liverpool, 2006-10
Olympiacos, role unknown, 2010-11
Fiorentina, scouting head & later sporting director, 2011-Present

Notable players he has signed: Micah Richards, Mario Gómez, Luca Toni, Joaquin, Nastasic, Cuadrado, Ilicic.

Meh. Seems we could do better. And I don't want anyone associated with the mess that Liverpool signings were during the Rafa period.

On the other hand I can see why this person would be interested in taking the job even with the signing limitations and lack of job security.

The Messi to Chelsea rumours in over drive WiC. Also, great news as he was complete and utter rubbish. Zubi that is.

I remember Phil Ball writing a few years ago that RM and Barcelona rarely have equal seasons. When one is in turmoil, the other is going really good. Luckily for you guys, we are bound to get in some sort of turmoil so just bare the bad weather a bit...

Barcelona is close to deal with new sports director. Announcement Wednesday. Will be someone with low profile who knows the club well [rac1]

Eusebio confirmed.

neva 5get:

Zubizarreta (sports director): "Song can play centre back, but at Barça automatisms are very important at that position, he needs time"
Zubizarreta (sports director): "Douglas can play in a defense of 4, defense of 3, and even as midfielder. He gives us more tactical options"
Zubizarreta (sports director): "We have been following Douglas since two years. First scouting reports are from 2012
Zubizarreta (sports director): "If we'd have wanted, we'd already have sined a centre back, but we want someone who improves what we have."
Zubizarreta: "Benatia? We chose to sign Mathieu and Vermaelen. Every team has their own needs. We needed left-footed, versatile players."
