Rafael Marquez to replace Sergi as Barcelona B coach


Rafael Marquez is set to take charge of Barcelona B for the new season.

Marca says former Barcelona defender Marquez will return to the club for next season to coach the B team, taking over from Sergi Barjuan.

Sergi is generally considered to have done a good job, as shown in the number of players making the step up to the first team in his tenure, something which also affected the B team's results on the pitch.

The appointment hasn't been officially announced yet but terms have been agreed and a deal is in place with the Mexican.

Marquez spent seven years at the Catalan club as a player, winning 12 trophies, including two Champions League titles.

Considered one of the best Mexican players of all time, he played 147 times for his country, scoring 17 goals.
