Victor Valdes problems came after clashing with his bosses for what he meant not giving him enough Independence at the club.

He clashed with newly appointed La Masia Director and former Blaugrana striker Patrick Kluivert and shouted at him for what he called interference.

The former Catalan goalkeeper was sent to the stands in his first home match with the Barcelona U-19 team for protesting over a foul.

The team was beaten by Ajax youth team in the grand opening of the Estadi Johan Cruyff and this did not go well with his bosses and the fans.

Valdes was not bothered as he looked for excuses and said that they had not gotten a chance to train from that field and it was not a Champions League final.

He also expressed his anger and promised to fight until his team was allowed to play in the new Estadi Johan Cruyff.

Valdes further could not keep his cold towards the young boys whenever they made a mistake instead of guiding them.

On the disagreements between the Board and players led by Pique Valdes also commented and it didn’t go well with his bosses.

The coach’s tactics are also questioned after the team has lost all important matches under him and they were entirely dominated in all of them.

It should be noted that when Kluivert was appointed as head of La Masia he promised to safeguard the Philosophy of fellow Dutch Johan Cruyff.

Definitely they had to clash if the coach was not exhibiting tactics that would take the philosophy ahead.

According to inner sources Valdes had promised not to return to the club as he had also told the boys that his future with them was not certain.

He cited lack of Independence where he was so much interfered and said that with the current direction he would not come back.

He said that the current Board is taking the club into wrong direction that is why Xavi coming to coach the club is only talked about after the 2021 elections.

The current leadership does not deserve such Legends like him, Xavi and Carlos Puyol who recently turned down the Sports Director job.

Many Board Members have resigned and remember there has been a miss understanding between the Board and current players.

Gerard Pique told Bartomeu that former president Joan Laporta was present during the player’s dinner.

All in all the results are poor, tactics poor, no discipline where will such a person be allowed to work even though the new Board comes in in 2021.
