With impeachment looming, Barcelona president, Josep Maria Bartomeu has decided to withdraw himself from the current mess at Barcelona after Luis Suarez’s departure.
Lionel Messi and several fans felt like Suarez’s departure was handed in quite an unprofessional manner.
The 33-year-old striker was in actual terms driven out of the club as his contract was terminated despite expiring next summer. Leo Messi’s threat of leaving Barca earlier this season along with Suarez’s departure has seen a lot of controversies grown at the Catalan club.
In particular, there has been an ongoing process to get rid of Josep Maria Bartomeu. Fans and former players believe that the club’s wrongdoing and the current situation is because of the board led by Bartomeu.
Leo Messi even stated that he has nothing against the club, however, it is the president that has transformed this great institute into an absolute disaster that most players do not want to associate themselves with.
Having said that, instead of addressing the media and admitting that the fault is all his due to the irregular decisions.According to Spanish publication, Cuatro, Bartomeu has decided to wipe his hands off this mess and ignore all questions thrown at him regarding the current situation.
In fact, this is pure cowardice. Nothing else. Bartomeu has turned the club into a laughing stock with horrible signings, forcing players to leave, illegal business activities, hiring hackers, and whatnot.
The president plans on completing his entire term until next summer and has decided that he will not resign irrespective of whatever happens this season. The only hope that the Catalan club has now, is it have either Joan Laporta or Victor Font as the president of the club following the elections in 2021.
