Marc Bartra was the only footballer from Barça's squad that attended the media in the press mixed zone after the match Levante. The ruling of the Professional Football League states that at least three footballers of each club appear to talk to the media. After the match against Levante though, only Marc Bartra appeared in the press mixed zone, the zone for the attention to media when players already had a shower and changed.

 

The fine to breach this rule of the three footballers goes between 30.051 and 300.506 euros.

However, it seems that the club will not be penalized because the club argues that the player attending television rights just when the match ends (flash interview) and the player who visits the set of Barça TV should also be included in this group of 'three'.

This is not the first time that only a player of Barça agrees to talk to the media with journalists. Unlike other sports, players denying to explain themselves after matches are increasing.
