Barcelona will not win anything in five or six years, says CBF director

The outspoken Brazilian official claims the Blaugrana will not be on top for much longer and believes that the club's youth academy is poor.

The story is too old to be commented.

Hmm... does this guy have a grudge against Barca or is he just making wild predictions? Especially saying that the team's youth is poor. Isn't that how Barca got where it's at now, by growing their own?

It definitely looks like a 'Grudge', Barca is in top form & may just win more than 1 title in next 5/6 years.

Not sure about 'grudge'. The world of football often follows cycles. Barcelona are probably as good as they are going to get right now, i don't think they can get better, only poorer.

A few really key players are not getting any younger, and they will not last forever. Replacing the likes of Xavi, Puyol, Villa, Keita and Abidal etc will not be very easy in the next 5 years as they are all the wrong side of 30.

Xavi and Puyol in particular, long term captain and vice captain of the team are well into their 30s. Xavi is a huge player for their style and control.

Will Guardiola hang about to rebuild? All signs are that he probably will not. It is impossible to really predict what might happen to the club's fortunes, but it is fairly clear replacing players of such quality is no easy task.
