FC Barcelona – La Liga The latest figure to speak out
Victor Font feels that the arrest of former president Josep Maria Bartomeu tarnishes the image of Barcelona.
Bartomeu was arrested for his role in ‘Barcagate‘ and the presidential hopeful believes that the only remedy is serious change in the right direction.
“It is a very sad day for Barcelona. Respecting the presumption of innocence, events such as today are seriously damaging the institutional image of the club,” Font said.
“We have been saying for a long time that the model that has served until now no longer works. It is essential to make a change and have a club that is much more transparent, in which the representative bodies are truly independent of who is in charge and that the control mechanisms work.
“Only with this change will we ensure that, from now on, these types of situations do not happen again,” he concluded.
