In addition, Bartomeu referred to the white team's non-corridor:” This aisle theme, It is a matter of respect among players, among professionals of football, here is the initiative of the players, who talk to each other and know each other, I am convinced that Barça would have made the corridor to Madrid if In the Mundialito, it was not done because we did not play that competition, if Madrid decided that, it's their decision. ”
The Culé president also spoke about the arbitration controversies, He said he commented on the plays with Florentino Pérez: “We commented on certain plays. It is very difficult to arbitrate and we up there have the advantage of seeing the repetitions. We do not always coincide with arbitration decisions.
