He is a man of the highest confidence of the Barça sports director

They coincided in different teams and he brought it to work at FC Barcelona

Jordi Cruyff and Joel Lara Rodríguez are the eyes ofFC Barcelona in the World Cup in Qatar 2022. The Barça sports director is traveling today to the World Championship, while during this time he delegated the duties of seeing possible players who may be interesting for the club in the present and the future in the hands of the scout, of his utmost confidence.

Joel Lara coincided with Jordi Cruyff since they were both together at Maccabi in Tel Aviv. They also worked together at China’s Shenzhen, where he served for ten months as international analyst and head scout while the Dutchman was on the bench. Previously, Lara had been head of scouts for the Ecuadorian national team, performed the same duties as at the Chinese Shenzen Chongqing Dangdai FC and at Maccabi Tel Aviv, in addition to having led the international scouting department at Sporting de Gijón.

He arrived at Sporting at the hands of Nico Rodríguez in the winter window of the 2015/2016 season and left the club when he left in the summer of 2017. He was in charge of preparing reports on players abroad and creating databases for monitoring of potential signings.

Possibly, one of the players that he will be following is the Ghanaian player, Kudus, of whom Jordi Cruyff spoke wonders. “I saw him play a year ago and I have followed his career at Ajax. We are not at the point of saying “Barça loves this player”, far from it. But he is a player who has drawn attention for his performance and his goals in the World Cup. It particularly strikes me because of the debate in the Netherlands about his position, whether he is an advanced midfielder or a striker,” he said in an interview with Rac1.
