Carles Puyol Reportedly Rejects Barcelona Sporting Director Role

Ex Barcelona defender and captain "Carles Puyol" have revealed how he rejected the chance to rejoin the club as a sporting director.

It was earlier noted that Barcelona president "Josep Maria Bartomeu" affirmed that he was going to convince Carles Puyol to return to the Nou Camp to fill the role left vacant by Pep Segura, who departed by mutual consent in July.

"After thinking about it a lot I decided not to accept the club's offer," Puyol, who spent his entire playing career at Barcelona between 1999 and 2014, said on Twitter on Wednesday.

"It was not an easy decision, I always said I would like to return to the place I consider my home, but various personal projects I find myself immersed in at the moment would stop me from giving the exclusive dedication this role deserves."

Carles Puyol would have had the opporyunity to work at Bacelona alongside sporting director Eric Abidal and director of youth football Patrick Kluivert, both former team-mates.
