Barcelona bring back the legends

While their summer transfer market activity has been disappointing thus far, Barcelona have brought some former club legends back to the Camp Nou in coaching and ambassadorial capacities.

Juliano Belletti, who scored the goal to give the club their second European Cup, has returned as a global ambassador, joining former teammates Ronaldinho and Eric Abidal in the role.

Belletti played alongside his new colleagues in the most recent Barcelona Legends match, with Rivaldo, Gaizka Mendieta and Ludovic Giuly featuring as well.

The Catalans also announced on Monday that Jose Mari Bakero and Guillermo Amor would return to join the club's coaching staff, having played in the dream team of Johan Cruyff.

Coach Ernesto Valverde and sporting director Roberto Fernandez are similar cases in that they have returned to work for Barcelona, though neither achieved iconic status during their playing days at the Camp Nou.
