The crises suceden in Can Barça lately and now touches to face the one who has generated by the six resignations of the Managerial Board. Josep Maria Bartomeu​ was the one who did that it exploded when calling and cease of his charges to Emili Rousaud and Enrique Tombas. From this moment, the events have sucedido and only a pair of days afterwards so much they like four members more than this Board have decided to leave.

In total, in addition to Rousaud and Tombas, vice-presidents, also have gone out Maria Teixidor, secretary, and the vocal Silvio Elías, Josep Pont and Jordi Calsamiglia. All published a letter of farewell to announce his exit of the club. "We want to communicate that the managerial undersigned have moved to the President Bartomeu ours decision to resign of irrevocable way of our condition of directors of the FC Barcelona. We have arrived to this point to the not to see us able of revertir the criteria and the forms of management of the club in front of the important challenges of future and, especially, from the new stage post pandemia", puntualizaron.

After this episode, Bartomeu goes to have to take decisions and says that it could incorporate to two new members to his directive. The president of the Barcelona only expected four resignations, by what the course of two of his already ex directors has him pillado by surprise. Although it will take it to him calmly because only it wants to people of confidence to his around, the idea would be that they arrived two new members to be a total of 15.

Nevertheless, by law would not be necessary that 'fichara' to anybody, since the Statutes of the Barça like this reflect it. The Board will be able to follow without any problem and will not see forced to resign en bloc, in spite of the exit of so many of his members. Only in the case that it go at least 50%, including the gone out president himself; of 75%, without including to the maximum mandator; or when only they remain five members would have to say goodbye those that remain.

The article 33 says that when it composes the Board is necessary that there is between 14 and 21 directors, something that no sucedería right now. Luckily, this empty legal involves that it would not be necessary to retouch at all in the case of not wanting to do it. Barotmeu, this yes, prefers to incorporate to two new members to be a total of 15, since so much resignation at the same time has left touched to his Board.

Criticisms by the 'Barçagate'

In the letter of farewell of the six directors that have gone of the Barcelona, all criticised the management of the club and of his responsible maximum in the called 'Barçagate'. "We have to remark also our disenchantment by the unlucky episode of the social networks, known as 'Barçagate', of the cual were connoisseurs through the press. We ask here that once it present the result of the audit commissioned to PWC, debug responsibilities as well as the eventual resarcimiento patrimonial that correspond", said. For the moment, there has not been reply by part of the president, although it could arrive in brief.
