Barcelona Announces Departure of Coach Roger Grimau.

Barcelona officially announced on Saturday, June 8, that they have ended their collaboration with coach Roger Grimau. The news, anticipated for some time, was confirmed in an official statement released at noon.

End of an Era for Roger Grimau.

For months, the question surrounding Barcelona’s technical leadership was not if Roger Grimau would be sacked, but when. The moment arrived on Saturday, with the club explaining that their collaboration with the rookie coach and former team star had been terminated.

Barcelona, eliminated by Olympiacos in the Euroleague Playoffs and by Real Madrid in the semi-finals of the Liga Endesa, finished the year without any distinctions. The 46-year-old Spaniard ultimately paid for the team’s failures with his job.

Future Plans and Potential Replacements.

Now, the Catalans are planning several drastic changes to their roster. The priority on their agenda is to hire a new coach, with the return of Xavi Pascual being a primary focus. Additionally, Jaka Lakovic of Gran Canaria (also a former player of the team) and free agent Dimitris Itoudis are on the list of potential candidates.

Player Movements and Roster Changes.

Once an agreement is reached with a new team manager, roster additions and replacements will begin. Rokas Jokubaitis, seeking a new stage in his career, has already left. Additionally, two players have agreed to join other teams: Nikola Kalinic with Red Star and Oscar Da Silva with Bayern Munich.
