Bartomeu: Messi has agreed to a salary cut from the very first day
The game is over for Bartomeu
Leo Messi has taken it upon himself to take a second major step against the current management of the club. In his statement, referring to a 70% reduction in players’ salaries, the Argentine said the club’s management was putting the players under extra pressure.
14 of his teammates supported the captain. They shared this statement on social media.
Marca journalist Carmen Torres reports that Barca players have long lost trust in club officials. Therefore, they are trying to stay away from them.
At the same time, the local media spread false reports that the players refused to cut their salaries by 70%.
In Leo Messi’s statement, we read: “We wanted to cut salaries because we realize how special this case is. We were all surprised when the club decided to test us and put us under pressure to do what we were always prepared to do.”
