When it seemed that the Bartomeu era ended with the return of Joan Laporta to the presidency, the former president of the club attacked again through secondary effects caused by a very poor management that will go down in history as one of the worst managers of all time .
Josep María has turned one of the best teams in history into an entity without direction, indebted to the bar, with no room for maneuver and with a future ahead of which everything but good news is expected. You have to love Barcelona a lot, and in a very unconscious way, to be optimistic in the short term during the next five years.
Bartomeu’s investment in the signings of Griezmann, Dembélé and Coutinho, as well as the payment of their salaries are one of the main reasons why Leo Messi cannot continue at Barça. Between the three they charge a much higher figure than Messi was willing to accept. In addition, their signings were financed with the sale of Neymar, money that should be used to restructure the club and start a sports project from the base.
At the press conference this morning, Laporta was asked about the real culprit for Messi’s goodbye, to which he replied: “The list of culprits … The basis of everything is the management of the previous board, It is a situation that cannot be resolved from today to tomorrow. We have taken a couple of months to do the audit and we are finding several things with BarçaGate, Espai Barça, BLM. We will have to act in the face of mismanagement, it is difficult for us to understand how These decisions were made. I do not want to victimize the rules. We already knew the regulations, but they cannot make me accept an operation that we think they pay a third of what we believe. I understand that some clubs accept it, but we are Barça “I am not going to mortgage the long term for the short term. We are planted. This has consequences, but above all there is the institution, FC Barcelona.”
It has been almost a year since his resignation and the last blows of his term are still reappearing. A historical crisis that has forced Barça to close the season with losses of 447 million euros. A figure that will go around the world and allow unbelievers to understand the reason for the saddest “goodbye” in history.
