Barcelona president Joan Laporta has pledged to purge the club of its under-performing stars - but insists Ronaldinho, Samuel Eto´o and coach Frank Rijkaard are going nowhere.

The Catalan giants had only the Copa Catalunya title to show for their efforts in an otherwise fruitless season and discontent in the crowd has been mirrored within the dressing room. Eto´o and Ronaldinho had a public spat, while Rijkaard received heavy criticism for surrendering the Primera Liga crown to arch rivals Real Madrid.

He told club website "We are all responsible to differing degrees of blame and responsibility. But there will be comings and goings and these are practically decided and will soon be announced."
