The president of FC Barcelona, Joan Laporta, will introduce Sergi Barjuan to the first team squad this afternoon before training at the Ciudad Deportiva.

Sergi Barjuan will attend the media on Friday, from 1 pm, in the press room of the Sports City on the occasion of the Barça-Alavés match preview, in an appearance with President Joan Laporta.

FC Barcelona on Wednesday relieved Ronald Koeman of his duties as first-team coach.

“The president of the club, Joan Laporta, informed him of the decision after the defeat against Rayo Vallecano,” said the club in an official statement.

Barcelona suffered a defeat against Rayo Vallecano on Wednesday and as a result, the side has slipped to ninth place in La Liga standings. The Dutchman was appointed as Barcelona manager in August 2020, taking over after Quique Setien had been asked to leave. 67 games in charge, Koeman had a record of 40 wins, 11 draws and 16 defeats.

Meanwhile 90min.com has reported that Xavi is expected to succeed Ronald Koeman on a permanent basis. However, his release from current employers Al-Sadd is expected to be delayed. Thus, Serji Barjuan’s arrival justifies that Barcelona is ready to wait for Xavi’s services.
