While waiting for the vote of no-confidence, the president of Barcelona, Josep María Bartomeu, reappeared in the center of the scene in Spain and took out the new Champions League that the institution won this Sunday in the futsal category.
“A Champions is a Champions and it is necessary to celebrate it all the culés. All these adversities are noticeable. Andreu Plaza, Miguel Andrés and Txus Lahoz have made uA great job this strange season. It has cost us a lot. We had not been able to win it for six years and we are very happy”, Declared Bartomeu after the 2-1 victory against ElPozo de Murcia, led by Argentine Diego Giustozzi.
And I add: “In this board of directors we made a very strong commitment to the section and to the Champions League. There are three in 10 years. It is a sporting and resourceful effort and we are in luck. In addition, we will be in the next edition and we could win two Champions in this unusual season”.
As for the first team, Barcelona has not been able to conquer the Orejona for five editions and not even the 939 million euros that Bartomeu spent during his tenure could break history, especially the last one, in which he received a defeat against Bayern Munich by 8- 2 in the quarterfinals. That night in Lisbon he unleashed the famous burofax of Lionel Messi, who formally expressed his desire to leave the club, in the absence of a year before the end of his contract.
“Not only are we culés happy with futsal. In all the teams we have many illusions and we have started with good results”, Highlighted the top leader in relation to the beginning of the era of Ronald Koeman in the Spanish league.
There will be a vote of no confidence against Josep María Bartomeu in Barcelona
When the scandal started over the possible departure of Lionel Messi from Barcelona, Jordi Farré presented a request to initiate a motion of censure against President Josep María Bartomeu and its board of directors. Had to reach 16,521 signatures of the Blaugranas partners to pass a vote to decide whether the current board of directors will leave its position early and elections are called.
In mid-September, the promoters claimed to reach and even greatly exceed the target figure, reaching 20,687, which were delivered and, according to Spanish media, were validated, so there will be a vote of no confidence against Bartomeu. Anyway, the current president could resign so you don’t have to go through the process.
Between the next 10 and 15 days, Barcelona members must vote and they will need two-thirds to give their support to remove the boss, who is the third in the entire history of the Culé team that reaches these instances in a motion of censure. The previous ones were those promoted by ‘Elefant Blau’ and Oriol Giralt against Josep Lluís Núñez in 1998 and Joan Laporta in 2008, respectively. None of them went ahead.
