The signing of Braithwaite by Barça is raising a lot of controversy because it leaves Leganés without a striker and unable to sign a spare. The president of the club cucumber was critical and hurt with the Barcelona team
After full weeks of rumours and news on the possible substitute of Ousmane Dembélé in the Barça, the group barcelonista did at last official this Wednesday the signing of Martin Braithwaite. The Danish will be the forward that occupy the square of the lesionado extreme French in return of 18 million euros. The culés paid his clause of rescission, since the Leganés denied to negotiate. This movement has raised a lot of controversy, since the 'pepineros' remain without his '9' headline and without the possibility of fichar a relief.
The norm of LaLiga indicates that anybody can fichar out of term, unless it was by medical reasons, as it is the case of the FC Barcelona. The Bequeath, therefore, remains with 18 'kilos' more, but without his attacker referent and without being able to bring to anybody for what subtracts of course. Many are taking advantage of to criticise the rule and asks that LaLiga leave fichar to Madrilenian team, but others also are criticising that the Barça have done this signing knowing this.
In the Leganés have broken his silence after announcing the arrival of the international Danish to the Camp Nou. The president of the club, Victoria Peacock, has showed very hurt with the Barça for having fichado to Braithwaite of this way. "For us it is an exceptional situation that did not expect us. The damage already is done. They give us or no option of fichar, is difficult to repair the damage. Of course that are hurt. We do not go to go in in the values of the other", ensured.
The posture of the maximum leader of the team is similar to which has Martín Ortega, general director of the Leganés. The leader also was critical with the Barcelona and confirmed that the culés knew what were doing him to the Bequeath when they paid the clause. "The Barça knows the damage that can do with the course of Braithwaite. We consider that there is a rule that is not just. The FC Barcelona has benefited of this rule. The prejudiced is the Leganés", affirmed.
Nevertheless, the gentleman Ortega himself admitted that the Catalans acted properly according to the law. The Barça thought in his interests and simply took advantage of of a norm that would not have to exist for many. "The performance of the Barcelona has been correct, have kept us informed at all times and have done use of a valid rule", recognised.
The Leganés, more annoying with the norm that with the Barça
The 'pepinero', this yes, showed even more bother with the norm in question and with LaLiga and the RFEF, that with the own Barcelona team. "We want to heave the voice. The damage is enormous. We do not understand by no means the current regulation. That to a team, because lesione a player of long length, can of unilateral form do this and move this problem to 100% to the Leganés is a sinsentido", signalled.
Ortega Wanted to leave clear that in the case that the negotiation went spoiled, everything would change, but to the not being the case thinks that would have to be forbidden what has done the Barça. "We would understand that the normative enabled a permission to the Barcelona to carry out a signing by means of mutual agreement, but no by means of this formula, with the payment of the clause of rescission", said.
Although the general director of the Leganés criticised the law and even to the Barcelona of rebound, did not say an alone bad word of Braithwaite. Ortega Did not doubt in wishing him luck to the Danish in this new stage. "It has been a knight. Yesterday even being connoisseur of what could happen, trained with his mates with normality. Knowing that it could lesionar. It has been a grandísimo professional in the Leganés. Until yesterday it came to sack of all the personnel of the club and to inform us of the situation that had. We wish him the elder of the lucks", concluded.
