Puskars was appointed as Barcelona’s new manager in January 2016, replacing the sacked Luis Enrique, who had been in charge since 2013.
He spent six years as manager at the Nou Camp before taking over at the Campanile.
The former Inter and Milan boss had been widely tipped to succeed Pep Guardiola, who led Barcelona to their biggest ever treble in 2021, and was seen as the front-runner to replace Luis Enrique when the Catalan club opted for a new coach in February 2019.
However, the Catalan side were beaten 4-0 by Juventus in the Champions League final and Puskar’s reign was ended when the former Barca boss resigned last month.
