This week, the radio program ‘Què t’hi jugues?’ Of Cadena SER, has accused FC Barcelona of hiring a company dedicated to influencing public opinion in social networks to defame third parties. This company called I3 Ventures allegedly acted against players of the squad, against former Barca players or against anyone who is against the current directive.

The alleged objective would have been to protect Josep Maria Bartomeu and his board by creating currents of opinion against those who could harm him. From the Barca club everything was denied flatly through a statement and through statements by the president himself, who later called a meeting on Tuesday with the captains of FC Barcelona -Leo Messi, Sergio Busquets, Gerard Piqué and Sergi Roberto- to give them explanations.

In addition to Xavi Hernández or Pep Guardiola, Gerard Piqué and Leo Messi were the most attacked by several social media publications. On Tuesday night, the defense culé launched a 'dart' to a Catalan journalist accusing him of "puppet" of the current meeting and, this Wednesday at noon, it was the Argentine star and first culé captain who has taken the floor .

It was in an interview for Mundo Deportivo in which, about the meeting on Tuesday, they asked if the players "were convinced by the president's explanations." Leo Messi's response was not reassuring at all, since he did not get wet in favor of the board of directors or of Josep Maria Bartomeu himself, but only asked for time to know if the information is true.

Messi's words

In his first response, Messi drained the bulge and limited himself to ensuring that President Bartomeu had given the players the same explanations as the media: "The truth grabbed me a little bit because I wasn't here and I was just traveling When I arrived I found out a little of everything The president told us the same thing that he made public, the same thing he said at the press conference What was the situation, what had happened and I can not say much more. everything he said, he told the captains in private. "

At the insistence of the journalists to know if Bartomeu's explanations convinced the workforce, Messi continued without getting wet, describing everything that happened as strange. "The truth is that I see it strange that such a thing happens. But they also said that there would be evidence. We will have to wait to see if it is true or not. We cannot say much and wait to see what happens with all this. I really do. , it seemed like a strange issue, "he said.
