Kluivert out as Academy Director, as Laporta clearly shows he has other plans for FC Barcelona
José Ramón Alexanko is said to be replacing Kluivert by next month, as decided by newly-elected President Joan Laporta. Unlike the other members of the Bartomeu board, Laporta has allowed Kluivert to finish and clean up the season before leaving.
Kluivert played as a striker for FC Barcelona as he netted 122 goals in 257 games for them around the years from 1998 to 2004.
José Ramón Alexanko was a former Barcelona defender, and also an assistant coach under the spell of Charles Rexach who secured the famous napkin signing of Lionel Messi. He is strongly rumored to be joining Laporta’s team as Academy Director for La Masia.
