Barcelona President Juan Laporta gave the green light to the club’s director of football, Matteo Alemani, to stay in the club, although Barca issued a statement weeks ago announcing Alemani’s departure at the end of the current season.
Laporta welcomed Alemani’s decision, with a statement issued by the latter later announcing his survival and continuing at the “Camp Nou.”
And the Spanish newspaper “Marca” stated that Alemani met Laporta and told him that he felt connected to the project and wanted to complete it.
And “Marca” revealed that Alemani did not ask for more money and will continue with the same salary, and this was accepted by Laporta.
There were many reports indicating Alemani’s departure at the end of the current season, and his contract with Aston Villa Coached by Spaniard Unai Emery, who is achieving outstanding results and is eighth in the Premier League table.
Barca confirmed Alemani’s departure at the end of the season, a year before the end of his contract.
Al-Barca added that Al-Yamani agreed to complete the club’s plans to sign new players, despite his official departure on the first of next July.
Alemani, 60, will leave after two years with Barcelona to start a new project that has not yet been decided.
And Barcelona continued in a statement, “The president (Barcelona Juan) Laporta allowed the departure of Alemani after his commitment to completing plans to sign new players until his last day, and for the club to be able to consult him whenever necessary.”
Barcelona won the La Liga title for the first time since 2019 and the 72nd in its history.
