Barcelona Dismiss Valdes as Youth Coach


Barcelona have sacked Juvenil A head coach Victor Valdes with immediate effect, amid rumours of a bust-up with Patrick Kluivert behind the scenes.

He was expected to oversee the development of Barca's next generation of stars, but his coaching stint has been cut short prematurely.

Widespread reports have suggested that Valdes and the club's director of youth, Kluivert, do not see eye to eye, with friction between the pair reaching boiling point over the last week.

Valdes did not appear on the sidelines during Barca U19's 2-1 win at Gimnastic de Tarragona on Saturday and he has been officially dismissed on Monday morning.

Barcelona have released a statement on their website, which reads: "FC Barcelona has told Víctor Valdes that he is no longer the coach of Juvenil A and belonging to the Club.

"Artiga Franc, until now coach of Juvenil B and in the Masia since 2010, becomes the coach of Juvenil A."
