Next is Ballon D'or.. Its the golden era for Barca femeni, full of world class players...
After lot of rumours in recent months is now officially confimed that Markel Zubizarreta is leaving the club.
Big blow for FCB Femeni.
Hopefully Laporta will find a good SD to replace him but won't be easy. Zubi Jr. has done a phenomenal job to build this team into what it is today so big thanks to him and good luck wherever he goes.
His successor will have a hard task to renew all the expiring contracts in current financial situation.
Alexia, Patri, Sandra Panos, Mapi Leon, Mariona and Lucy Bronze are all out of contract next year. Wouldn't be surprised to see at least one or two of them leave. Thankfully we have very good talents coming through Barca B who will probably get a bigger role.
Initial thought was, joining City Group? Let's see if that one develops.
Don't follow the women's team attentively, bar the odd big fixture. So I have a question.
Seems to be an odd dynamic in the women's football section where the players have more power. Take the example of the Barca team wanting the previous manager sacked, or now the national team with half the players quitting (even before Rubiales and the World Cup).
Why is this? Are they not used to the demands of professional football, or being told what to do?
Re-reading that it seems incredibly sexist .
But really, we don't get this kind of unionism in the men's game.
Well, bar Togo In World Cup 2006 when they weren't getting paid
