In Barça’s statement, they also wished to thank the coach for his dedication and hard work this past season and to wish him success in his future professional endeavors.
In this manner, Juan Carlos Unzué says goodbye to the blaugrana Club after eight seasons as the goalkeeping coach.

In the summer of 2011, with Carles Busquets wishing to return to the reserves, Unzué returned to FC Barcelona to again guide the ‘keepers of the first team.
