FC Barcelona have announced technical structure for next season’s youth football system.

Newcomers to the youth team staff are Josep Olivé, assistant manager of Alevín C, Miguel Ángel Calderón, assistant manager of Alevín D, and Sandor Kocsis, assistant manager of Pre-benjamín.
The Juvenil B team technical staff will be composed of manager García Pimienta, assistant, Ramon Ros, and physical trainer, Andrés Martín. Xavier Franquesa, who up until now was the assistant manager of Cadete B, will now assist Quique Álvarez in Cadete A. The Cadete B team will continue to be managed by Fran Artiga, who will be assisted by Carles López, former trainer at Infantil A. He will be replaced by Oscar Jorquera, who managed at Alevín D. Jorquera will assist Denis Silva in the Infantil A team.
