When it seemed that the president of Barca had controlled the roadmap of his last year in office by degrading Vice Presidents Rousaud and Tombas and keeping the Pont and Elias executives in chapel, accusing them of being unfair and arguing that they had lost their confidence, the club’s top president He received a direct to the jaw that left him shivering, but still believes he will resist. Although these resignations were joined by the resignations of Jordi Calsamiglia and the secretary of the board Maria Teixidor in the resignation to continue being part of the council, Bartomeu believes that with a couple of additions it is enough for him to overcome the biggest wave that has been presented to him in his last term.
After the statement released by the club midday on Friday denying that no one from the club “got their hands on the box” As Rousaud denounced, it is implicit that the president will not react until at least Tuesday with the new appointments. The first to sound to join the council is Teresa Basilio, who could not join the meeting because when they proposed it in her day she was not five years old as a member.
Bartomeu’s idea is to resist against all odds. The resignation by surprise and night of six executives the morning of Holy Thursday Delivering a letter to a notary in Barcelona asking for elections and denouncing the malpractice of the club in the management of Barcagate and distrusting that this board can direct the club after the crisis that the impact of the coronavirus will suppose In the entity’s finances, it does not shake a president who has decided to fly alone for a long time.
Bartomeu’s plan for the next few hours is to remain silent, think about the remodeling of the meeting and act next week.
The president has stayed with 13 directors, which statutorily allows him to continue governing the club as long as he incorporates one more. And that’s what it’s going to do. Article 33 establishes that the board must be made up of a minimum of 14 and a maximum of 21 members. Today, the board is made up of two vice-presidents: Jordi Cardoner and Jordi Moix, as well as the members Joan Blade, Javier Bordas, Didac Lee, Josep Ramon Vidal-Abarca, Pau Vilanova, Oriol Tomas, Xavier Vilajoana, Marta Plana and Jordi Argemi.
Any more resignation would leave the current president in a truly compromised position, but from Barca they are sure that the box will be increased. But as the situation is chaotic, Barcelona on Friday morning was abuzz with rumors. No further resignations were ruled out.
What seems clear is that those who enter, will have many numbers of being fundamental in the politics of the last work of management of the current president. no one will enter this meeting to be a vase. In the current situation, any incorporation will be with an electoral perspective. The same that has led the noble plant to the most devastating fire with the merit of having made it confined and from home.
