Asked about the future of Barcelona sports director Txiki Begiristain (read more here), Barcelona first vice-president Alfons Godall has repeated in an interview with Spanish news agency EFE that he hope the former player, whose current contract expires at the end of the season will continue at the club:

"The stability during the recent years is the results of the existence of the function of the sports director. We will do all we can for Txiki to continue. We appreciate his work, and now we actually can count on the most valuable Txiki, because he has gained a lot of experience over all those seasons, he knows the agents, the players, the dynamics of the market and its mechanisms."
