Bartomeu’s bombing of his own board. According to Joan Vehils, a journalist very close to FC Barcelona, the club president has asked for the resignation of four club officers, including two vice presidents, just start the last meeting.
Bartomeu has demanded the resignation of four managers in a plan to revolutionize the current board. The president has given them two hours to weigh their resignation or they would become vocal without functions, according to Vehils.
The Board of Directors was called at 5:00 p.m. by video conference. Bartomeu has taken the floor and has demanded the resignation of the 4 managers. It has given them 2 hours to think about it or they would become vocal without functions …

The SPORT newspaper also indicates who may be indicated by Bartomeu, and there is some surprise among those indicated. The first of them, Emili Rossaud, right hand from the president and so far the foreseeable continuity candidate in 2021. The Catalan leader has decided to do without him for disloyal and maneuvering behind his back.
The same decision has been made with Enrique Tombas, fourth vice president and treasurer, Josep Pont, responsible for the commercial area and Silvio Elías, member and manager in charge of Barcelona B. Sus substitutes would be other board members that they would be promoted to these positions.
This Bartomeu revolution comes motivated by the ‘Barça Gate’ scandal which strained the situation within the institution in late February. Apparently, a part of the directive requested the resignation of the president and the immediate call for elections so as not to weigh down the electoral options of the candidates who could leave the current directive.
