Josep Maria Bartomeu is in his last year of mandate at FC Barcelona. After his war with Leo Messi and the 2-8 against Bayern, it is convenient to remember and remember when the project got out of hand with the president
His 'war' with Leo Messi has been the shot of grace for Josep Maria Bartomeu that does time that does not have the backrest of the fans of the FC Barcelona. The Argentinian 'undressed' to the president in his interview to 'Goal' of does less than a week and loaded against him very duramente. In addition to saying that it was missing to his word when promising him that it could go if it wanted for afterwards deny it, the '10' criticised the management of the maximum Barcelona mandator.
"It does not come of the result of the Bayern, comes of a lot of things. Always I said that it wanted to finish here and always I said that it wanted to remain me here. That wanted a winning project and win titles with the club to follow agrandando the legend of the Barcelona to level of titles. And the truth that does time that there is not project neither there is at all, go doing malabares and go covering holes to measure that go happening the things", signalled the captain.
These malabares and these holes that cover according to as they go the things comes of long, but probably began to do much more evident in 2017. The Barça, in spite of the subidón by the legendary traced back against Paris Saint-Germain, finish the course losing of conclusive form with the Juventus of Turín in the chambers of Champions. A defeat that added to the one of LaLiga and that did more painful still by the doublet of League and League of Champions that did the Real Madrid.
This same summer, Neymar Jr decided to plant to the group barcelonista and put course to the PSG. The Parisians, against all prognosis, turned him into the most expensive signing of the history paying the 222 million euros of his clause of rescission. A moment tremendously painful for all the culés, that saw like the heir of Messi left to be the big star of a club that also fichó to Kylian Mbappé to try win the Glass of Europe.
Bartomeu began to improvise in 2017
In this moment was when Bartomeu, in place to seat , think and trace a new plan, began to improvise. The Barcelona had a plan until this moment and this plan called 'MSN'. The trident formed by Leo, Ney and Luis Suárez already brought a triplete in 2015, and with a competent trainer and very surrounded could have brought a lot of more successes. But the paulista went without prior notice and the project culé went to the drain.
The president decided then take advantage of the money of the PSG and fichar the most striking that there was in the market. To start with, it spent 105 'kilos' more 40 in aims by a promise like Ousmane Dembélé. The French had very good paints in this moment, but was far to be a star consecrated that cost this dineral. Besides, they arrived Paulinho and a Nélson Semedo that had to be the relief of Dani Alves. The Brazilian fulfilled, but few understood his arrival, whereas the luso still today follows without having won the approval of all the barcelonismo.
Months after this, in January of 2018, also arrived Philippe Coutinho. The Brazilian turned into the most expensive signing of the history of the Barça with 120 millions and 40 in variables, an atrocity. Up to now, the one of River has disappointed, the same that Dembélé, to the that the injuries have hammered from 2017. All the money of Neymar went in two players that hardly have had incidence in the team and that have not showed almost at all since they arrived.
Besides, in 2019 it landed in the Camp Nou Antoine Griezmann, a big footballer, a star, but an unnecessary player taking into account how plays the Barcelona. The French has been very far of his best level and for now has not found his place. Messi did not want that it arrived and tried that the club brought again to Neymar, but the PSG denied and Bartomeu opted by the one of Macon. A year after this, the Barça has finished his first year in white after long. Besides, Messi wants to go, only goes to remain forced and everything indicates that the president will finish going in March, when they will be the elections, by the rear door.
