Bartomeu: “The management has been serious and responsible”

The former president of FC Barcelona Josep María Bartomeu, broke his silence to defend his management at the head of the Barça entity in interviews with ‘Mundo Deportivo’ and ‘Sport’. These were his best phrases.

«The management has been serious and responsible. I’m not saying it. This is said by LaLiga, UEFA and Forbes, who valued us as the most valuable club, but the pandemic drastically reduced revenues ».

‘The club is not bankrupt or insolvent. That is not true. Without COVID I would have lost only 50 million in the 2020-21 season. “

«As president I did everything possible, all the efforts, so that Messi did not leave the club. He thought it was good for Barça and for himself that he continued with us. This summer they have let him go and that does seem like a bad decision to me.

«It is normal that the players participated in the increase in income. We went to the limit of the parameters ».

“In the summer of 2020 we had an offer from an English club of 150 million for Ansu Fati who would have settled the accounts.”

«I would have signed with CVC. It would be a quick way to have resources lost due to the pandemic and alleviate the lack of income.

«In ten years, twenty-two titles have been won, the sections have won more titles than ever and we have left the best women’s team in the world, with that treble … And lots of players have come out of our grassroots football. That is our heritage. EFE (HN)
