Barcelona confirmed on Friday that director of football Pep Segura has had his contract at the Camp Nou terminated.

Segura still had a year left on his current deal but now follows Jordi Mestre out of the club as Barca shake things up off the pitch.

Here’s the club’s statement:

“FC Barcelona and Josep Segura have reached an agreement to terminate his contract with the club.

“FC Barcelona publicly expresses its gratitude to Josep Segura for his commitment and dedication, and wishes him good luck and success in the future.”#

Technical secretary Eric Abidal is expected to take on some of Segura’s responsibilities

The move follows yesterday’s announcement that Patrick Kluivert has returned to the club as the new director of youth football.
