Barcelona sack Eric Abidal

Spanish giants Barcelona have terminated the contract of sporting director Eric Abidal.

The move comes a day after the sacking of the team’s head coach, Quique Setien.

The move is one of “many changes” set to take place at the Catalan club following their 8-2 defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-final on Friday.

A statement read: “The club publicly expresses its gratitude to Eric Abidal for the professionalism, commitment, dedication and positive and close treatment he has always shown towards all the estates that make up the Barça family, and wishes him luck and success in the future.”

Abidal, 40, played for Barcelona from 2007 to 2013, winning four league titles and the Champions League twice.

After retiring he returned to the club as the director of football in June 2018, replacing Roberto Fernandez.
