Bartomeu deactivated a crisis that threatened to break Barça, but Leo Messi's response to Éric Abidal has had consequences. The squad backs up the captain because he acted to defend the players
Josep Maria Bartomeu resolved this Wednesday a threaten of crisis that loomed with breaking to the FC Barcelona, that lives a season with too many altibajos in the sportive and in the institutional. The Catalan returned immediately of a meeting in Brussels and launched a message of union and stability, with which scared any possible doubt arisen of a 'brush' between the technical secretary and the greater star of the club.
The Tuesday jumped the news with the conflict between Éric Abidal and Leo Messi, when the one of Saint-Genis-Laval pronounced some words that did not like at all to the of Rosario. The Frenchman glided that the dismissal of Ernesto Valverde produced because there were several dissatisfied players and that did not work a lot, and the Argentinian demanded that it avoided unfounded indictments and that assumed his responsibilities by the decision that took.
Although the fast and effective intervention of the president avoided greater evils, this case has had consequences in the staff, that has lived with normality a day in which it was under the focuses. As it has recalcado Quique Setién that also goes out reinforced by his management of a moment of tension, spoke a minute of the subject before centring in the truly important, an appointment with the Glass of Rey.
According to several next sources to the changing room culé, the team is very happy with the performance of the '10', that exerted of captain and gave the face by the group. The canterano understood that it was planting to the footballers like only guilty, and cleared that the power proceeds from above. Of not to have it fact, the suspicions aimed to the 'heavy weights', and especially to him same, of the one who always says that it commands more than anybody.
In a course with a lot of obstacles, the cracks have clear that the union will be key, and this episode reinforces them because his main representative underlined that the commitment is firm and that does not wobble in front of external pressures -or internal-. Without señar to the leaders, insists in that all row in the same direction, and that even without stars like Luis Suárez or Ousmane Dembélé the intention is to struggle by the aims.
The Barça reacts to struggle the titles
The Barça, so consistent in some occasions like fragile in others, has recovered of the doubt and is centred in the battle by the titles, more difficult that never with a Real Madrid grown and a change of trainer in the Camp Nou, where there is a short staff and overwhelmed by urgent needs. In spite of everything, the intention keeps on being to give the face in the coming months, in which it will give everything for conquering LaLiga, the Champions and the Glass of Rey.
