At the end of each month, offthepitch.com will bring you news of the latest executive job changes in the football industry. 

Focusing on off-pitch executives from clubs in the Big 5 European leagues, we’ll bring you a confirmed list of those who have left their role and others who have grabbed a new job.

The only place to start this month's round-up of football executive job changes is FC Barcelona. The Catalan giants' president Josep Maria Bartomeu resigned ahead of an expected vote of no confidence next month, with the entire board also stepping down.

Granada CF also has a new man in charge, with Rentao Yi replacing Jiang Lizhan. Lizhan, who owns the club, is now honorary president.
