FC Barcelona Latest News:

Barcelona After the quarrel about the six-time world footballer Lionel Messi at FC Barcelona, ​​the pressure on club boss Josep Maria Bartomeu is growing.

The president of FC Barcelona is threatened with a vote of no confidence by the members and a forced farewell before the elections planned for March.

According to the “More than one movement” initiative, more than 20,000 people had signed a petition by Thursday with the aim of driving the unpopular Josep Maria Bartomeu and his board of directors out of office by means of a referendum.

At least 16,250 votes were required. If the signatures are recognized by the Spanish first division, the club of world footballer Lionel Messi has to call the referendum.

Should 66.5 per cent of the 150,000 association members vote in favour of saying goodbye, the board of directors around Bartomeu must leave before March.

The 57-year-old Bartomeu recently ensured that Messi stayed with the Catalans against his will.

The professional announced that he was staying because club boss Bartomeu had insisted on paying the transfer fee stipulated in the contract.

According to media reports, this amounts to 700 million euros. Messi actually wanted to leave Barcelona after the disappointing season with an 8-2 win against Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Jordi Farre, who is running for the presidency of the traditional Spanish club, said: “I honestly think he should step down today.

I think that the number of signatures is so high that we don't need the bland aftertaste of a referendum, which would be a very bad defeat.
