Victor Valdes set to return to Barcelona as an academy coach

Former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes is to return to the Blaugrana to coach one of the club's youth teams.

The Juvenil A team, which was coached by Denis Silva, didn't meet expectations after getting knocked out from the UEFA Youth League in the semi-finals by Chelsea, after they couldn't win the Division de Honor title and after they were also eliminated from the Copa del Rey.

Meanwhile, the Juvenil B team's 2018/19 campaign was successful as they managed to clinch the Liga Nacional trophy finishing ahead of Espanyol and Damm.

Valdes could return to take over one of these sides.

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has assumed the mantle of restructuring La Masia and no member of the academy has a guaranteed spot in the club, bar the coach of the B team Garcia Pimienta.
