Ramon Planes named Abidal assistant at Barcelona

Ramon Planes has been named assistant to Barcelona's new director of football Eric Abidal.

Planes has signed a three-year contract with the Catalan giants, the same period which Abidal has agreed to work for.

He leaves behind his role as director of football at Getafe, although he will be expected to work closely with Abidal on recruitment matters at the Camp Nou.

The deal was confirmed on Friday, though Planes had settled terms with Barca for some weeks.
