As the legendary football club Barcelona is searching for players who might replace Ronald Koeman who was recently dismissed, Sergi Barjuan will become the team’s new interim head coach.

“FC Barcelona hereby announces that Sergi Barjuan, the current coach of Barça B, shall be taking provisional charge of the technical management of the senior squad. His interim position as first team head coach shall end as soon as the club has hired a full-time head coach to replace the dismissed Ronald Koeman,” the club officially said in a statement published on their website. 

He will start fulfilling his duties as soon as the club’s president Joan Laporta presents him to the team.

Barjuan himself has already played in Barcelona as he has an overall number of 386 played games and nine won trophies. 

The first match of the team with the new manager will take place on Saturday against the Alaves.

Currently, Barcelona is entering a new phase as its legendary player Lionel Messi with whom the club has been associated with for a long time has left the club.

During his last press conference, he gave a speech and was not able to hold back tears
