The events of recent weeks have placed the board of Josep Maria Bartomeu in the pillory, but the Barça leadership has softened the situation
It is not any secret that 2020 has begun of form very convulsa for the FC Barcelona. In the first place, the Barcelona group was deleted of the Supercopa of Spain to hands of the Athletic of Madrid and, in spite of making a good party, the defeat supposed the head of Ernesto Valverde. It was then when the club culé decided that it had arrived the hour to do without the services of the Txingurri.
If it already was criticised the decision to throw to the technician extremeño -as already it had been it keep him in summer- more went it the forms that the club employed with him, negotiating with several trainers and, after several refusals, opting by the contracting of Quique Setién. In that moment, already there was some controversy by the image that left the club after the 'saplings' of Xavi Hernández or Ronald Koeman.
The situation aggravated with the injury of Luis Suárez, that launched to the club to fichar a leading centre to substitute him for the rest of the season. Regarding the signing of the attacker, changed several times of idea for finally decide that it did not arrive any '9'. A market of winter that left more controversial as, for example, the exit of Todibo, Aleñá, Wagué or Carles Pérez, that weakened the staff.
These last sportive decisions saw aggravated by the new injury of Ousmane Dembélé, that will be of drop until the next month of August. It was then when, after the cost of 18 million euros in the clause of rescission of Martin Braithwaite (that it will not be able to play in Champions League), many agreed of the incomprehensible decision of traspasar to Carles Pérez or to Abel Ruiz, canteranos that could be good resources in the offensive plot.
After the controversial words of Éric Abidal with the fulminante answer of Leo Messi, all has burst with the presumptive implication of the FC Barcelona with the accounts that have difamado to several players of the staff (like Gerard Hammered or the own Messi), ex players (like Xavi Hernández or Pep Guardiola) and electoral rivals of Josep Maria Bartomeu. Something that finish of dinamitar the internal situation of the club, and that the fans did not forgive this Saturday in the Camp Nou.
The sportive save the institutional
In spite of the indignation exteriorizada of the terracings in the FC Barcelona-Eibar, the four goals of Messi and the one of Arthur helped to calm something the situation. Finally, the Real Madrid also threw a hand with his defeat -that supposed that the Barça recovered the leadership of LaLiga- to the weakened figure of Bartomeu and of his board. Sportive results balsámicos to help to digest a delicate situation of club.
