Miami, April 8 (EFE). Inter Miami CF on Thursday announced the appointment of Spaniard Xavier Asensi as their new business manager.
Asensi joins MLS team after 10 years with FC Barcelona, ​​where he was Commercial Director and a member of the Catalan club’s management committee.
In his new position, the Spaniard, who is awaiting corresponding visas from US authorities, will lead business operations and business strategies, reporting directly to the director and owner, Jorge Maas.
“Xavi has achieved a successful record with one of the biggest clubs in the world. His vision will help drive the growth of our club while supporting our local and commercial associations,” Maas said in a statement issued by Inter Miami.
The new recruitment of the American club, of which former English player David Beckham was one of its owners, began his journey with FC Barcelona as Director of the Asia Region, where he led the creation and implementation of the business plan on the continent between 2011 and 2013.
Soon after, he moved to Hong Kong to take charge of opening his first office outside Barcelona.
“I am very excited and excited to start this new challenge in my South Florida career. I am a huge fan of the United States and I think there is no better time to be involved in football in this country with a young organization that has many,” Asensee said in remarks included in the press release.
David Beckham’s club is preparing for its second season in the Major League Soccer, after a lackluster opening season, and after Britain’s Phil Neville signed his new coach, replacing Uruguayan Diego Alonso, in recent weeks he announced new appointments for the team.
Last March, he announced the addition of defenders Kieran Gibbs, who will join the squad in the summer once his relationship with West Bromwich Albion of the Premier League ends, and Kelvin Leardam of Seattle Sounders FC.
