As I understand Nunez will leave when his term in 2002 expires. I could be wrong cause the article I read was in spanish and I have never learned spanish in school but to you spaniards the article are posted at www.sportal.es
Yeah! Isn't it weird Nunez is going and not van Gaal. I mean I always thought the handkerchiefs at the Valencia game were aimed at the coach not Nunez. Maybe he got to carried away and took it too personally Poor guy, maybe Barca will go bankrupt?
Barca won't go bankrupt cause the club is owned by the fans (like Madrid). The president's primary responsibilities are administrative in nature not financial. Like hiring coaches and signing deals with companies. Most of the money come from TV and sponsorhip deals as well as the socios' fees.
I think Nunez is just resigning out of delicadeza. Van Gaal should do the same. They spent a lot of money and didn't get the desired result.
