'Tata' out, Barca confirm . Q: Should Barcelona have maintained their coach? . Details: Barcelona have confirmed coach Tata Martino has left the club by mutual consent. The Argentine only took over last summer but has failed to land a major trophy following a season blighted by problems off the pitch, including the controversy surrounding Neymar's move to the club, Sandro Rosell's resignation and the tragic passing of former boss Tito Vilanova late last month. Former Barca midfielder Luis Enrique is the overwhelming favourite to succeed Martino. He resigned as boss of Celta Vigo on Friday and Goal understands he is in pole position to take over at Camp Nou. Barca’s last hope of silverware in 2013/14 disappeared with Saturday’s 1-1 draw at home to Atletico Madrid. They went into the final-day contest needing a victory to land the Liga crown on a better head-to-head record than Atleti. All appeared to be going to plan when Alexis Sanchez put them in front in the first half but Diego Godin’s towering h ...

Guardiola Visits Vilanova In Barcelona Pep Guardiola paid a flying visit to Barcelona on Monday where he spoke with his friend and former Blaugrana colleague Tito Vilanova their relationship was said to have cooled after Vilanova took over as Barca boss, with some reports suggesting Tito had expected more support from his friend when he had to leave the job due to illness. The situation was also complicated by internal 'feuding' between camps associated with current Blaugrana President Sandro Rosell and his predecessor Joan Laporta. According to Mundo Deportivo the current Bayern Munich coach flew into Barcelona via private jet on Monday morning to deal with some personal matters, and then met with Vilanova for over three hours in the afternoon. No details of their private conversation emerged -- however the Catalan paper claimed they may have been clearing the air and letting bygones be bygones.

BELIEVES TATA HAS PICKED UP THE BATON Rosell: "We're working to preserve and perpetuate our philosophy" FC Barcelona President Sandro Rosell has stated that despite the recent arrival of new manager Gerardo 'Tata' Martino, his club will continue to pursue the same sporting philosophy as in recent years - based on getting results through an attractive style of football. He was speaking at the assembly of club delegates, held on Saturday at the Palau Blaugrana. Rosell also went on to say that the club will always defend Catalonia's "right to decide" as, in his opinion, Barça is "politically plural" and will thus always be in favour of accepting "one of the fundamental rights of peoples and individuals, and that is democracy". Speaking before 500 of the 4,333 delegates who had been called to the assembly, Rosell said that future challenges for his board are to maintain sporting excellence, get the club debt down below €200 million by 2016, redesign the stadium or construct a new one, as well as increasing ...

Barcelona fans to revolt if starlet sold to Manchester United Fans in Catalonia not happy about the sale of the Thiago. The expected transfer of midfielder Thiago Alcantara from Barcelona to Manchester United this summer is set to make Barca fans revolt, reports Spanish newspaper Sport. ... sportthiago5 The Spain under-21 international has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford after being underused in a Catalan team brimming with talent – such as Xavi, Andres Iniesta and Cesc Fabregas. Yet the prospect of selling Thiago has stirred anger in the Barca fans, not at the player but at the hierarchy of manager Tito Vilanova and President Sandro Rosell. The supporters believe that by selling the 22-year-old Barca are giving the completely wrong impression about their priority to youth and plan to revolt if the deal goes through. Rosell has been an unpopular figure at the Nou Camp following the way he handled Eric Abidal’s departure from the club, with the defender feeling he was forced out shortly ...
Barca target £30m swoop for Mata with Chelsea star's future in the balance under new boss Mourinho Barcelona have made Chelsea's player of the year Juan Mata their No 1 transfer target. Despite Mata's hero status among Blues fans Jose Mourinho is struggling to fit the Spanish playmaker into his plans for next season. The returning 'Special One' is looking to play Belgian star Eden Hazard in the 'hole' and that may squeeze Mata out. Barca's interest in Mata could convince Roman Abramovich to cash in on the £30million-rated World Cup and European Championship winner. The Spanish champions are overhauling their squad this summer with the likes of David Villa and Cesc Fabregas heading for the exit door. Neymar has already arrived at the Nou Camp from Santos but boss Tito Vilanova wants to bring in Mata to balance his attack. Chelsea owner Abramovich and Barca President Sandro Rosell have both been in Israel for the European Under 21 Championship. Although the deal is far from done the pair have discussed th ...
Sandro Rosell has always opted for Tito Vilanova was emphatic on this point: "There is no doctor who has told me that it has no coach."
As we all saw in the second leg of the Spanish Super Cup, Barcelona's defense is not the strongest. Carles Puyol is getting up in age and a young center-back is needed. For whatever reason, Tito Vilanova is following Pep Guardiola’s steps of not giving the squad’s young CBs a shot at sufficient playing time. This past summer, Sandro Rosell tried to get Thiago Silva from AC Milan, only to fail. Silva was later sold to Paris Saint-Germain. Although Barcelona needs to give Marc Bartra and Marc Muniesa a fair shot at earning the CB spot for the future, perhaps a more experienced CB is needed. Enter Brazil’s Dedé. Dedé is a 24-year-old, 6’3” CB who plays for Brazil’s Vasco da Gama. He started his career at Volta Redonda and later moved to Vasco de Gama. In 2010, Dedé had a break out year as he was named the Brasileirão’s best right center back that year. AC Milan and Juventus have been previously rumored to be interested in Dedé’s services. Earlier this year, Dedé stated that he was not r ...

Barca's slump expected - Rosell Spanish La Liga giant, Barcelona FC, slump in recent weeks was expected, the club's President Sandro Rosell said. Speaking in an interview, the 48-year-old said the absence of coach Tito Villanova grossly affected the team's performance. "There is no doubt that a group gets weaker when they lose their leader," Rosell said. "Sports psychologists say, and I suppose there is a scientific explanation to it, that after 30 days the group's shape weakens. "We have been without our leader for a long time now and it is normal to see this happening. He is longing to come back, hoping for the process to finish, which is due at the end of March. "The other day he told me he was happy because he could start the countdown as he is over half of the process and he has less than 50 percent of it left. That is very good for his state of mind. He wants to come back and we want him back." "The absolute priority of the club this season is for Tito Vilanova to get his health back and everything ...

Rosell: Picking Vilanova as coach was the best decision Barcelona President Sandro Rosell has praised the decision to replace Pep Guardiola with Tito Vilanova. Vilanova replaced Pep Guardiola at the end of the 2011-12 campaign following the latter’s decision to end his four-year spell at Camp Nou and Vilanova has since guided the Catalans to their best ever La Liga season. “Tito has talent, he understands what Barcelona mean, what La Masia is and what being Catalan means,” Rosell told reporters. “It was a brilliant decision by Zubizarreta to give him the job.” Rosell then discussed Xavi Hernandez, who signed a new contract on Monday. “He has just renewed his contract until 2016. He’ll be 36-years-old by then, but we believe this deal won’t be the last he signs with us.” inside spanish football, admin andrew

Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova faces six weeks of tough chemotherapy after his surgery on his parotid gland takes place later today. It was announced yesterday that the 44-year-old had a relapse, having undergone surgery to remove a tumour on the same gland last November. Vilanova, who replaced Pep Guardiola this summer and who has enjoyed a great start to his tenure, will be in hospital for four days, with assistant coach Jordi Roura taking charge of first team affairs. Barcelona have announced that the coach will take as much time as he needs to get back to health. "Tito is strong, very strong. He's shown us that and we're convinced he'll back with us very soon," club President Sandro Rosell told a Press Conference. "We want to express our unconditional support to Tito and his family. "We thank everyone for their support. We have complete confidence in the team. The club is very strong and united; we're capable of overcoming adversity." -XKR

Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova says Lionel Messi is on the way to becoming the best player of all time. And Vilanova, who has replaced Pep Guardiola in the Barca hot seat, has revealed that everyone at the club hopes he will end his career there. Blaugrana President Sandro Rosell confirmed this week that the Catalan side are planning to offer the Argentina international a new contract, despite his current deal running until 2016. And club trainer Vilanova has echoed the desire to keep Messi with the Liga giants for the foreseeable future. "He is the best in the world. If he is not already the best in history, he will end up being so," the 44-year-old told a Press Conference. "To all at Barca it would be a joy to have him end his career here. You will not see a player like Messi again."
I still don't understand what Sandro Rosell, the President of FCB is trying to prove by replacing Pep Gordiola with Tito Vilanova. The only experience he ever has is as an Asst Coach, not the man at the helm, who can take pressure. Now, that is showing with his stupid game plan against a "Rival" team. I'm shocked. This isn't the Barca Team I know.
Cruyff: Mourinho is mad 22 August 2012 Former Barcelona star Johan Cruyff has branded Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho a failure as a footballer. The Dutchman laughed off Mourinho's self-granted title of 'the only one', and even had harsh words for Barca's President Sandro Rosell. "He had nothing to show for himself as a footballer but now he can do something," Cruyff told AS. "Yes, he is 'the only one', the only one mad enough to say a thing like that. He's so mad he's in a straitjacket." Cruyff went on to discuss the transfer policies of his former team, and said that new trainer Tito Vilanova has a lot to prove. "The best philosophy is to create players, not buy them. We (Cruyff and Rosell) don't share the same philosophy. I don't believe he understands the notion that Barca is more than a club," he said. "He (Vilanova) has to prove his worth when the going gets tough. We'll have to wait and see before we jump to conclusions about him. Working behind Guardiola is not the same as being in charge, it's co ...

Vilanova will continue Guardiola's legacy, says Rosell The Blaugrana supremo was keen to heap praise on the man who led the club to 14 titles in four seasons, while at the same time expressing his faith in his successor By Mark Doyle Barcelona President Sandro Rosell felt that Friday's Copa del Rey triumph represented the perfect send-off for Pep Guardiola and claimed that new boss Tito Vilanova will continue the winning legacy at the club. Pedro struck twice either side of a goal from Lionel Messi as the Blaugrana claimed their 14th trophy since the arrival of Guardiola as coach in the summer of 2008. As far as Rosell was concerned, it was a fitting finale for the former Barca midfielder. "It was an end to honour the best coach in the history of the club," the Blaugrana supremo enthused. "Tito will continue the legacy." Rosell also had some kind words for a distraught Athletic, who ended what was a wonderful campaign empty handed after losing their Europa League decider against Atletico Madrid by the sam ...
Liga - Guardiola calms waters ahead of final Outgoing Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola sought to make the succession of his number two Tito Vilanova as smooth as possible as he gave his last Nou Camp news conference, ahead of the Copa del Rey final. Guardiola has the chance to exit the club with the 14th trophy of his four-year reign if Barca can beat Athletic Bilbao at the Calderon in Madrid on Friday. The build up to his departure has been dominated by media rumours that he was unhappy with the way club handled the news that his friend and assistant Vilanova was to succeed him, with suggestions that he did not know. This has led to sniping between the former president Joan Laporta and incumbent Sandro Rosell that has threatened to de-stabilise the club. "After being knocked out by Chelsea I rang Tito and I told him the moment had arrived and that they were going to offer him the position, and that he should do what he thought best," Guardiola said referring to their Champions League semi-final exit.
