Every time the former president of Barça speaks, he creates a stir in the Blaugrana environment. Bartomeu left yesterday in an interview for Esport 3 some statements about his management that have not gone unnoticed. The former president regretted not having acted earlier to renew the squad and blamed the situation of Barça’s accounts on the pandemic.
If Bartomeu were intelligent, what he would do is disappear from any public sphere and hope that Barça recovers from the hole in which it is plunged, because if not, all responsibility and anger will fall on him. As long as it continues to appear in the media, it will not stop provoking the partners and even the current managers, who are the ones who are really suffering from the disastrous administration carried out by the previous board of directors with Bartomeu at the helm.
Barça under the command of Bartomeu has only improvised. After the departure of Luis Enrique and Neymar, Bartomeu did not know how to reform the team. He did not hit on coaches capable of reshaping the squad, and he did not know how to invest the multimillion dollar amount received from the sale of Neymar. Valverde was a good coach to continue competing, but Barça needed a renewal after many years of success. Instead, the board headed by Bartomeu, decided to spend astronomical amounts every year for players with inflated prices, Dembélé, Coutinho, Pjanic, Griezmann … are some of the names that did not quite fit in and have opened a black hole in the accounts of the Barça.
The pandemic has only been one more nail in the damaged accounts of Barça. Already before the arrival of COVID-19, the directive carried out exchanges of players with other clubs to be able to count the exits as transfers and give a better image of the accounts, than they really were. One of the clear examples was the one carried out between Barça and Valencia, who exchanged Cillessen and Neto, but which in the accounts reflected that they were different operations, something that could be considered illegal. For all these reasons, Bartomeu should try to keep silent for his sake.
