Josep Maria Bartomeu

Josep Maria Bartomeu was interviewed in the Catalan Television BTV where he talked about elections and about the search of a new Football Director. He said he didn't want elections to interfere in the sports calendar and that there was no hurry about finding a replacement for Zubizarreta, Football Director that was fired this January. Apart from that, he also talked about the first team:

First team

  • “We have Leo Messi for many years, we don't want to transfer him”.
  • “Messi, Suárez and Neymar are the best forward in the world. Every club envies us."
  • “Luis Enrique will have a long career in our club."
  • “The relationship between players is very professional.”
  • “We are in an unbeatable moment in terms of sport. There's no reason to say we are bad."

FIFA's sanction

  • “They have my phone to talk to me. They have to do the firs step because we have previously done many. It's their turn."
  • “We know that FIFA have reports about other clubs."
  • “In the future, Barça's case will be as famous as Bosman's case."

Abidal and the Football Director

  • “We want Abidal to work in the schools with the young players."
  • “Football structure has no coordinator now, but it's still working well. There's no hurry."
