Following Raul Sanllehi’s resignation as FC Barcelona director of football, the club’s sporting director Albert Soler has also handed in his notice.

Club president Josep Maria Bartomeu has accepted the 51-year-old’s departure but is not expected to make immediate changes to the boardroom hierarchy at the Camp Nou.

Pep Segura, the Blaugrana’s general manager, will keep his job and work alongside technical secretary Robert Fernandez as the Catalans prepare their January transfer window business.

Leaving in the aftermath of a difficult summer, where Barcelona lost Neymar and struggled to sign up a replacement, Soler cited fatigue among the reasons for his exit.
