TMI Tuesday: Andoni Zubizarreta

FC Barcelona sporting director. Go-to guy for news on club signings and contract information. Professional creeper on future talent.

This is how the current generation of culés see Andoni Zubizarreta, as a man behind a desk, or a microphone, speaking about a club so dear to all of us.

But this is only a small portion of the larger portrait of a legend, of a man who has given his everything to two clubs and his country. Zubi is a myth to be cherished and never forgotten.

Especial Guardiola

I just stumbled across this on Youtube completely by accident. It's a short (okay, 13 minutes) mini-documentary that chronicles what happened between Pep leaving Barcelona and returning as the manager, and the past few seasons. It features old footage, and interviews with Carles Rexach, Manuel Estiarte, various Brescia players, journalists, ex-Barça staff, Pedro, Xavi, and even co-HBIC Tito.

Bonus Guardiola press conference from yesterday:


Assulin signs for City

Record-breaking Israeli international Gai Assulin has joined City after leaving Barcelona, and the 19-year-old attacking midfielder can't wait to link up with his new team-mates.

For those of you who don't remember: Gai was released from Barcelona in July of this year. He has been training with the City reserve since October, and has participated in friendlies with them, including one against the Ajax reserve. Injury had prevented him from signing sooner.
