Frank Rijkaard will leave his position as coach of Barcelona at the end of season, a charity colleague of the under-pressure Dutchman said on Thursday.

Jil van Eyle, who is the founder of a charitable fundraising initiative called Teaming that works with Rijkaard, said in his blog on the Teaming website that he needed another sponsor because his fellow Dutchman was soon to be leaving Barca.

"Until now I am lucky that the company Samhoud pays me a monthly scholarship until December 2008 and apart from that I work for Frank Rijkaard who especially gives me a lot of free time to work on Teaming," Van Eyle said on "But as Frank will leave FC Barcelona within a couple of weeks my job for him will also end."
