Barcelona announce Deco as sporting director on 3-year deal

Share This

Barcelona have announced the appointment of former Portugal international Deco as the club’s new sporting director on a three-year deal.

ESPN revealed in May that Deco was in line to replace Jordi Cruyff, who left his role with Barca earlier this year to embark on new professional challenges.

However, Barca say Deco will also take over director of football Mateu Alemany’s duties once the transfer window ends.

“Deco will be in charge of setting the club’s sporting philosophy and putting together the squad with the coach, becoming head of the football section,” the Catalan club said in a statement.

“His appointment is in line with the information released in May in which president [Joan Laporta] and [Alemany] agreed the latter’s release from his role once the current transfer window closes on Sept. 2.

“Deco and Alemany will continue to work together until the closing of the window. In the coming weeks, the club will release details of the [new] sporting structure.”
