He will assume the position of sporting director and sign for one more year.
According to SPORT, Jordi Cruyff has extended his contract with FC Barcelona for another year. The club began to discuss his continuity at the end of last season and the agreement is now on paper. As per his preference, he has committed to one more year. The club would have liked to sign him for more, but they respect his decision.
When the sporting portfolio is presented shortly, the new position he will assume will be the sporting director and not the technical secretary. The club will be delighted at his renewal, as they see him as the brains behind the sports project along with Xavi Hernández. He is on good terms with the director of soccer, Mateu Alemany, who is more dedicated to finances side of things.
He started working on September 1, 2021, after having been an adviser and responsible for the foreign market. His work was decisive in the last winter market, and he recently played a key role, along with Xavi, in helping retain Dembélé. And he also recommended Raphinha to the coach, who has now become a fine addition.
Barça have also decided that he will continue to give the 'flash interviews' after the matches that the team plays. His speech and style of communication are well-liked and he can also make technical and tactical assessments if prompted. At the club, his assessment after winning the clásico at the Bernabéu by 0-4 is particularly memorable.
