Definitively, the mandate of Josep Maria Bartomeu, like president of the FC Barcelona, has come to an end, after presenting his resignation and the one of all the Managerial Board. It leaves the one who will be remembered like one of the worst presidents of the history, although it also had big tarpaulins, by his management of the decadence of the club.
The tarpaulins of Bartomeu
We have to remember that Josep María Bartomeu took the reins of the entity barcelonista, in 2014, after the resignation of Sandro Rosell. After almost seven years of mandate, the ex-president leaves a balance of thirteen titles, between which finds the second triplete of the history of the club. The titles are the main active sportive of one of the stages more laureadas for the group culé.
Three proper names will be remembered like the best leading of the history of the football for the rest of our lives: Lionel Messi, Luis Suárez and Neymar Jr. Although the Brazilian arrived before it did it Bartomeu, went under his mandate cunado the three attackers achieved to understand to perfection and star a second glorious stage of the club.

In spite of the current economic crisis, the Catalan director did that the past season presupuestasen 1.000 millions in income. The expansion of the mark Barça to international level, has been one of his big tarpaulins, with the openings of offices in New York and Shangai.
The errors of Bartomeu

The understanding between the directive and the team is basic for an organic operation of the events. The degradation of the bond with big heavy weights of the staff like Lionel Messi or Gerard Hammered, sentenced it.
Another of the big shadows of his mandate is the one who reported Lionel Messi, the unsteadiness of the sportive project. The fault of continuity of the sportive direction was key in this facet. Andoni Zubizarreta, Robert Fernández and Eric Abidal are some of the names of sportive directors that have managed without penalty neither glory by the Camp Nou, evidenciando the problem of the cúpula managerial.
Finally, we find the subject of the lethal wages. The mass salarial has been the ballast that has hampered the good management of the club. The turning point of the problem finds in the season 17-18, from this instant, lace payrolls of the staff blaugrana represent 70% of the total budget, roughly, a true madness.
