Barjuan will be introduced to the players by the club’s President Joan Laporta who will also be present during his first press meeting ahead of Alaves clash.

The news comes barely hours after the club dismissed Ronald Koeman following Wednesday night’s defeat against Rayo Vallecano. The results left them 9th in the table with 15 points.

Barcelona has already approached former midfielder Xavi who has accepted the offer but will now hold discussions with his current club Al Sadd before negotiations and unveiling is done.

Several managers have expressed their interest in the job but are fully aware of Xavi lead to secure the top job.
