Dispute over bonus: Barça do not want to pay ex-junior quartet
FC Barcelona refuses to pay four former junior players a bonus for reaching the promotion playoffs for the second Spanish division with the B-team. This is reported by Mundo Deportivo .
Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu and his board of directors have refused to resign, after an hour-long meeting of the club's board. A vote of no confidence is underway against the 57-year-old - but Barça apparently wants to prevent the implementation.
The executive committee is waiting for the final decision of the Catalan government whether the referendum can be held on November 1st and 2nd On Monday, Barcelona sent a letter to Pere Aragones, incumbent President of the Catalan government, asking him to suspend the vote.
The decision of the Catalan Ministry of Health is expected to be announced on Wednesday. Since a lockdown is under discussion in Spain due to the pandemic, an election is unlikely to take place at Camp Nou. Bartomeu's attempt to get a suspension is seen in Spain as another attempt to get stuck in his chair.
The Barça boss had been massively attacked by defensive chief Piqué immediately before the lost Clasico (1: 3), with Lionel Messi the tablecloth has been cut since the changeover in the summer. Barça's regular presidential elections are due in March 2021, by then at the latest Bartomeu will have to step down.
