Former Barcelona player Patrick Kluivert will return to the club, this time as Barca's new official, reliable ESPN reports.
It means that the second revolutionary board change is set to happen very soon, with the club's vice-president Jordi Mestre already leaving his post several weeks ago.
As reported by various media sources, Pep Segura, the present football area manager at FC Barcelona, will resign in the next few days due to a lack of confidence from the other board members. This was also underlined after Barca's unexpected defeat at Anfield in the Champions League semifinals last season.
Kluivert has spent the last few months working as Clarence Seedorf's assistant at the Cameroonian national team. From 2016 to 2017 he was the director of football at Paris Saint-Germain. As a player, he spent six seasons with Blaugrana and helped the team secure one La Liga title. In 257 games for the club, Kluivert scored a total of 122 goals before leaving for Premier League club Newcastle United.
