After the latest news that have gone out to the light with regard to the tension between the directive of the FC Barcelona and the players, Gerard Hammered has conceded an interview to 'The Avant-garde' in which it has criticised to the directive by his form to act. The Catalan defence has left in evidence to the board of Josep Maria Bartomeu with arguments that seem quite consistent from the point of view of the changing room.

Asked after his relation with the president, Gerard Hammered was clear and ensured to be hurt. "I do not want to carry me badly with anybody but there have been times... The subject of the social networks. I, like player of the Barça, see that my club has spent money, money that now are us asking, to criticise, no longer only to external people with a historical relation with the club, but to players in active, and this is an atrocity", explained.

Gerard Hammered, a legend in the Barça

The Catalan defence commented that Josep Maria Bartomeu said him be entirely to the margin but, after the sucedido, did not take drastic decisions in this regard. "I asked him explanations and what said me is 'Gerard, I did not know it'. And I believed it to me. As afterwards you see that, in future actions, the person commissioned to hire these services still is working in the club", regretted.

In concrete, Gerard Hammered the presence of Jaume Masferrer in the FC Barcelona after all it sucedido. "This hurts me a lot. I say it here because I said it to him before personally to the president. And what want to that it say him? It is painful? Yes. I can do something more? As no. My relation with the president can be cordial but there are things that remain", said.

Gerard Hammered also criticised the way to act of the club with the controversial discount salarial. "Like captain defend the interests of the team and take the decision to sign it. And here we are a changing room joined. Afterwards they say that the changing room has broken and do not know that more. They did it when a lot of players were with his selections, putting us in the same sack with all the workers. To personal title each player is free to accept the proposal voluntarily of the club. Another thing is that they force you of unilateral form and that do it with the forms in that they have done it. Here, the truth, am in total disagreement", signalled.

Also it argued why it renewed and it signed at the same time the burofax. "The club communicates me, to me and to other players, that because of the pandemia the club will suffer a lot economically and in this tessitura the Barça is above any person. The Barça has given it to me all, so I put me to his disposal. They say me that all the money to the that can renounce this year will be earned in a future. We do numbers and propose a quantity".

"If the players have had the power is because other people have not wanted to exert it"

Gerard Hammered neither understood the dismissal of Ernesto Valverde. "Speak 'with the newspaper of the Monday' as they say the Argentinians is very easy. We will not know never what would have happened, but to me, after winning two Leagues and being leaders, throw to the trainer to half of season, like project, does not seem me coherent. I did not see it logical. To us it summons us to a meeting and transmits us a message, and seems that we have to approve it or disapprove it, when we said: 'Gentlemen, that is a decision that have to take you'".

In this sense, Gerard Hammered added that "when a club works better and everything results healthier for all is when the hierarchies are very marked. The president has to be the first and afterwards the trainer has to command on the players. When this hierarchy breaks the things do not work. If the players sometime have had the power is because other people have not wanted to exert it".

On the other hand, it commented the very hard 2-8 of the Bayern of Munich in Champions League: "It Is necessary to do self-criticism. When you lose against the Bayern of this way is because you have neglected the routine. This does not arrive of a day for another. We hit rock bottom with the 2-8 and had to do a reset all to see what was the best for the club. From the humility, rowing and having clear that anybody is indispensable. There were a lot of vices purchased that required deep changes. It is true that have done some and that perhaps do not have to carry out all of hit, but has to notice that they do the things of another way".

Moderate optimism

Gerard Hammered ensured to be with "very good feelings". "The míster uses a very direct message that to the changing room has liked him, and the dose of work has increased. We have begun well the season, the defeat of Getafe was an unexpected hit. To see which raisin in the Classical", sentenced.

The Catalan defence spoke of the possibilities of the team this season. "It is necessary to split of the humility. Recognise that in Europe there are better teams right now. Have new faces that are contributing us vitality and legs for presionar better. It sees , I perceive it, are playing to another thing. It is necessary to do self-criticism. When you lose against the Bayern of this way is because you have neglected the routine. This does not arrive of a day for another", concluded.
