Barcelona FC have confirmed the sacking of the club’s under-19 coach, it is now official that the legend Victor Valdes is no longer U19 coach..
Valdes was only appointed as Juvenil A head coach back in July having returned to the Nou Camp five years after making his 535th and final appearance for them.
The news making round suggests that Valdes’ sacking was due to an alleged bust-up with Patrick Kluivert.
“Barcelona have informed Victor Valdes on Monday that he is no longer U19A coach and no longer employed by the club.”
In his 12 years with Barcelona, the 37-year-old won among others, six La Liga titles and three Champions League trophies.
Kluivert, the fomer Barcelona and Holland striker who is now the director of youth football at the Spanish champions, is said to have clashed with Valdes over a number of issues including the team’s formation and failure to turn up for important meetings with other coaches at the club.
