Joan Laporta has confirmed that Frank Rijkaard will leave the Club at the end of the 2007-08 season. Current Barça B coach, Josep Guardiola, will take over the reins of the first team. Joan Laporta spoke to reporters after a Board meeting on Thursday afternoon. (source)

Bye Frankie, it's been good. We'll never forget what you did for Barça.

For those that may not know Pep has only been with Barça B for one season and has not coached prior. So, yeah certainly a risk.

I'm gonna miss Frank so much :( I don't want him to go, he's been so good for Barça and he has never been anything but loyal to the team.
They could have at least let him finish his contract >.<

I hope Guardiola turns out to be a good coach...

Goodness. I will sure miss Frank :( I'm curious to see how Guardiola does with this level of team. He's got loyalty, and that is what I love. Can't wait to see how he does. I just love Frank, though.

Well after the thrasing against RM, i think it was inevitable he should leave but prior to this season, he was great. Hopefully this season will not tarnish his reputation and people will remember him as the man who bought so much to the club :)

Guardiola doesn't have much expericence at all so yes it is a risk. But he already knows the team and is a Barcelona man at heart, he understands the football club and will play the way they always have. Hopefully, the club will make the right 3 or 4 signings that are needed and he'll be succesful.
