It was announced on Friday that Valdes would not be on the bench for the U19s on Saturday and his dismissal is expected to be confirmed in the next 48 hours.
Patrick Kluivert, the director of youth football at the club, is clear on his job and doesn't want anyone stepping out of the line established by the club. For that reason, he advised Valdes to return to the 4-3-3 system. But Valdes didn't take it well, says Sport.
Valdes has already said goodbye to the players.
Barça are now looking for a substitute and the best placed at the moment is Franc Artiga, the current Juvenil B coach.
