Pimienta axe part of Barcelona coaching clearout

Javi Garcia Pimienta isn't the only departure from Barcelona's coaching staff.

The former B team coach was sacked on Thursday.

Marca says Garcia Pimienta's departure from the club's academy is part of a larger remodelling of the club's youth system.

He has been followed out of the exit door by Aureli Altimira, the club's director of youth football, and Alex Garcia, who works in the scouting department.

They could be joined by Jordi Roura, one of the directors of the B team.
