Barcelona hire former Milan sporting director Braida

12 February 2015, 17:09

Barcelona - Barcelona have appointed former AC Milan sporting director Ariedo Braida to a new technical committee to help oversee planning for the first team, the La Liga club said on Thursday.

Braida, who worked at Milan between 1986 and 2013, will join Carles Rexach, a former Barca player and coach, vice president Jordi Mestre and director Javier Bordas on the committee, the Catalan giants said on their website (www.fcbarcelona.es).

The club are creating the new body, which will work closely with coach Luis Enrique, following the sacking last month of Andoni Zubizarreta from his post as director of football.

Zubizarreta's record in the transfer market was generally poor and he was blamed for failing to strengthen a defence that was plainly lacking last season when the team failed to win a major trophy.

Zubizarreta's position became untenable when he told Spanish television that president Josep Bartomeu shared responsibility for a FIFA ban from two transfer market windows for a breach of rules on the transfer of foreign Under-18 players.
