Barca change communication director

Barcelona have reportedly sacked their communications director and are set to appoint a fourth person to the role since 2010.

The Catalans are expected to release a statement today confirmed Xavier Martin’s removal as communications director at the club, which is a position he has held since December 2011.

Mundo Deportivo believe that experienced journalist Albert Montagut will be appointed in his place and become the fourth different person for the role since Sandro Rosell’s election as President in 2010.

Pere Jansa originally began in the role under Rosell, but was replaced after 18 months by Ketty Calatayud, who was then succeeded by Martin in December 2011.

Mundo Deportivo allege that the most likely reason behind this latest change is the club’s belief that they have ‘failed to project a positive image’ with consideration of the board, the sporting, economic and social situation.
