Following an emergency board meeting, Barca's president resigned, as did the rest of the directors.
The socios of Barça and Lionel Messi won their case. After collecting enough signatures to launch a motion of no-confidence against Bartomeu's management, Blaugrana fans can smile. The Catalan president and all his administrators resigned on Tuesday evening after an emergency board meeting. Information that Goal can confirm.
After the Messi soap opera and while most socios thought he was going to resign, Bartomeu surprised everyone by announcing that he wanted to hang on to his chair until the presidential elections scheduled for March 2021. Faced with this announcement , the socios have mobilized to make things happen. Pushed against the wall by this vote of censure motion, the Barcelona management tried to push things back, relying on the health situation in Catalonia and the curfew.
Unfortunately, the Generalitat did not go in Bartomeu's direction in order to grant additional time and the one that has been in place since 2014 has therefore surrendered. He was the president of the treble in 2015 but also the one who blew up the infernal trio Messi - Neymar - Luis Suarez, with whom relations have grown strained over the years until the Pulga wanted to leave the club during summer.
