Martin Braithwaite already is to all the new effects player of the FC Barcelona. The Danish forward was presented this Thursday in the Camp Nou in an act in which the big protagonist was not he, but Josep Maria Bartomeu. The ex of the Leganés enjoyed in the signature of the agreement and in the lawn of the stadium barcelonista, but in press conference was an entirely secondary act. The appearance seemed more than the president that of him same, that hardly answered a pair of questions.

The big majority of questions directed to the maximum mandator of the Barça, that is living some very moved days by distinct controversies that wrap to the club. One of them is the way in which it has made the signing of the international by Denmark. The Leganés has remained without '9' headline and without possibility of fichar to a substitute and many are criticising to the culés for paying the 18 million his clause. Others, between which includes the president, criticise the norm that prevents that the 'pepineros' attend to the market.

Bartomeu wanted to show his support to the Madrilenian group and ensured that it is not just that can not fichar to another attacker after the exit of Braithwaite. "This morning we have done effective the payment of the clause of the player, but think that the normative would have to modify because it is not just that the Leganés can not now reinforce", signalled the Catalan.

The president barcelonista did not want to put in the big controversial that there is right now in the Barcelona by fault of these accounts of social networks associated to the club, that could have used for desprestigiar to players, ex players and contrary people to the current managerial board. Bartomeu confirmed that they are studying the case and that will inform of what suceda when there is something clear. "We are working internally and analysing it everything. When have something more than saying will summon you", said.

The press, nevertheless, insisted in this subject and a journalist asked him to the responsible maximum of the Barça if it could have dismissals after all what is happening. The answer, as in all the press conference, was elusive and Bartomeu left clear that only wanted to speak on the Danish tip. "I reiterate me in the same. We are analysing it everything. If there is some news, already will summon you. Today there is not it. The only that there is today is the presentation of Braithwaite", commented.

Bartomeu wanted to centre only in Braithwaite

Even when they asked after him the words of Leo Messi, that has ensured that his continuity depends on what want to do the club, Bartomeu insisted in that it was the day of the ex tip of the Leganés, that had to hallucinate when seeing that anybody asked him at all. "To me it likes me that Leo Messi follow evermore. I think that like this it will be, but have to Martin, our new signing, that goes to have to go in inside a team, with big players and expect to keep on being competitive in LaLiga", signalled.

The director blaugrana did not doubt in defending the arrival of the of Esbjerg, although many indicate that it does not have level to play in the Barça. "In this moment had a player lesionado of long length and the thing had difficult place. The technical team has acted quickly and does me happy know that this player, with this personality and character, have come. It will go very well to opt to everything", affirmed.

The president referred also to if Braithwaite is a signing in the short term or will follow the season that comes. The maximum mandator culé admitted that they trust he on a long-term basis, although the technical office also works in the arrival of another '9' of face to summer. "Martin has signed four years and half and comes to help. We are working in the current campaign and finish to arrive Martin after the injury of Ousmane. But the technical office is working in the staff of the next season, clear", recognised.
