Lionel Messi demands Josep Maria Bartomeu to call early elections. “Right now, we need new ideas, new faces and new plans.”
Spanish radio station Cadena COPE has reported that Lionel Messi has demanded that elections be called. Otherwise, he won’t be planning on renewing his contract in 2021.
His camp says. “Right now, we need new ideas, new faces and new plans,” is the word from within a devastated dressing room.
Meanwhile, AS reports, Barcelona’s dressing room is in no doubt: the Catalan club need to call presidential elections.
One of the team’s vice-captains, Gerard Piqué, indicated as much after Friday’s 8-2 Champions League thrashing by Bayern Munich. He told his post-match interview that an overhaul is in order at the Camp Nou.
