Neither the coronavirus crisis has given a truce to the cargo crushing machine that Espanyol has become thanks to Chen Yansheng. In fact, the health alert, having suspended LaLiga at least temporarily, has done is to accelerate a decision scheduled for the end of the season.

Agustín Filomeno has ceased this Friday to be the commercial and marketing director of Espanyol, as advanced by Voz Perica and has been able to confirm AS, just 17 months after taking office, in October 2018, and after having signed the last subscription renewal campaign (in which the fall of members from the previous summer was repaired to some extent) and having tried to promote the Espanyol brand with, among other measures, the opening of a store on the Rambla in Barcelona.

The figure of Filomeno was closely linked to that of Roger Guasch, who was fired as corporate general manager last December, and who signed him personally for the club after they carried out those same tasks together since 2014 at the Gran Teatre del Liceu. José María Durán, the general director resulting from the departure of Guasch, has been the executor of this latest cessation of duties.

At the end of 2019 he was also relegated from his functions as sports general director Óscar Perarnau, reinstated in the technical secretariat and giving all the power of the area to the director of professional football, Francisco Joaquín Pérez Rufete.

Also, in this same season Chen Yansheng, president and owner of Espanyol, has disregarded two coaches, David Gallego and Pablo Machín. And all this, waiting whatever (whether it is played or not) of the outcome of LaLiga.
