Spanish champions Barcelona have on Monday, October 7, sacked club’s legend Victor Valdes as the head coach of the under 19 team.
The former goalkeeper who won many titles at Barcelona reportedly lost his job because of several disagreements with club’s executives.
Top of the problems Victor Valdes had was a row between director of youth football Patrick Kluivert.
Victor Valdes has now been replaced with Franc Artiga who starts his role immediately at the youth team.
