Barcelona defender Ronald Araujo sent a message to Garcia Pimienta after the club announced on Friday the B team coach had had his contract at the club terminated.

Araujo worked under Garcia Pimienta after first arriving at the club from Boston River in 2018 and has thanked the coach for helping him develop at the Camp Nou.

Here’s what the Barcelona defender wrote on Instagram.

“Thank you for everything mister. It was not easy to get to such a big club with a unique philosophy, that’s why I want to highlight the great work and everything I learned from you and your staff. I wish you the best in what is to come. Hugs and thank you very much.”

It’s a kind gesture from Araujo who is currently with the Uruguay squad preparing for the Copa America.

There’s still no word from Barcelona on who will lead Barca B next season, although there have been reports Sergi Barjuan could take over.
