ADELAIDE, Australia (AP) - Barcelona great Guillermo Amor has agreed to spend a month as a consulting coach with Australian A-League side Adelaide United.

Amor, 46, who scored four goals for Spain in 37 internationals, will travel to Australia at the request of Adelaide coach and fellow Spaniard Josep Gombau.

Gombau said he is attempting to implement a Barcelona-style, possession-based game at Adelaide and asked Amor to observe United’s training and offer technical advice. “I want to see how a style such as this is being implemented in a place where it is not common.”

Gombau, who was Barcelona’s youth coach from 2003 to 2009, has previously signed Spanish midfielders Isaias Sanchez and Sergio Cirio for Adelaide.

Amor played 311 matches with Barcelona from 1988 to 1998 before stints with Fiorentina and Villareal.
