Barcelona presidential candidate Fernandez Ala: Garcia Pimienta can be our Flick

Barcelona presidential candidate Lluis Fernandez Ala says he wants Javier Garcia Pimienta as his senior coach.

Garcia Pimienta is currently in charge of the Barca B team.

Taking aim at president Josep Maria Bartomeu, Ala told Goal: "He never had a clear plan.

"He is only busy improvising and that is simply not possible at a club like Barcelona. We need a large-scale renovation and I am not just thinking of replacing Bartomeu. The club can no longer remain in the hands of the elite. Very clear ideas are needed to make it a great club again.

"On the bench we think of García Pimienta, taking Bayern Munich as an example. Nobody knew Hansi Flick and it now turns out that he is a great trainer. We really think that Pimienta can be the new Pep Guardiola."
