The presidency of Josep Maria Bartomeu in the FC Barcelona is touching to his end and now touches to value his work in the Barça. The motion of censorship could cause his course anticipated, but whatever happens with this vote, the Catalan will go , since in 2021 finalises his mandate and there will be elections. The true is that the maximum Barcelona mandator has done a lot of things badly, but also has hit in occasions and it is necessary to know value it.

It is necessary matizar that from January of 2014, 'Barto' was the president in functions of the Barcelona by the forced resignation of Sandro Rosell. He commissioned of the club from this moment, although technically his mandate did not begin until 2015, that was when it won the elections. In spite of this tecnicismo, suits to remember that in the summer of 2014 arrived two of the big artífices of the triplete barcelonista in the 2015, Luis Enrique, Ivan Rakitic and Luis Suárez.

Fichar To these three names is surely the most stood out contribution of Bartomeu to the Barcelona group. In order of importance, Suárez has left this summer of the Camp Nou like the third maximum goleador of the history of the club. The forward has left footprint in the Barça and has been key in all the titles from his arrival. The MSN that formed beside Neymar Jr and Leo Messi also forms part already of the legend and for many is the best '9' that has played in Barcelona.

In the case of Rakitic, the Croat has been one of the most profitable incorporations of the history of the club, since it cost little more than 20 million euros and has been decisive in a lot of trophies. The year of the triplete surrendered wonderfully and, although little by little his performance was to less, has gone this 2020 by the big door. A big professional, a big mate and a very good footballer that brought the current president.

On the other hand, Luis Enrique was very important so that the pieces fit in 2014. The Asturian arrived to put in order this changing room of stars and achieved it, although had brush with several 'heavy weights'. Bartomeu trusted his work, gave him varied touch of attention and at the end all finished with the second triplete of the history of the Barcelona. The MSN was the one who carried the big majority of praises, but the work of the current seleccionador Spanish also was decisive.

The arrival of Valverde in 2017 also was a tarpaulin

Also it is necessary to say that the election of Ernesto Valverde in 2017 was hit, since it achieved triumphs from his arrival in a moment very delicate for the club. The extremeño remained without Neymar Jr in full pre-season yet still achieved to give him the turn to the situation. It can that after the failure of Anfield or before, in the one of Rome, 'Barto' had had to do without he and mount another project, but his signing in 2017 was another tarpaulin, at least for the moment in which it was the Barça.

Finally, it suits to remember the arrivals of Samuel Umtiti and Clément Lenglet. The ex of the Olympique of Lyon went out very cheap and during a pair of years surrendered like one of the best of the world. His millionaire renewal has resulted being an error, since now that has gone down his level, is impossible to give him exit, but his signing was a big tarpaulin. In the case of the ex of the Seville, has consolidated in the centre of the defence, is young and seems that it could be important in the Camp Nou a lot of years. These would be the two last tarpaulins of the president in a mandate with a lot of shadows, but with some light that also was necessary to comment.
