He FC Barcelona has demonstrated this Monday in favor of Quim Torra, until now President of the Generalitat de Catalunya, disqualified by the Supreme Court for disobedience.
It has done so through an institutional statement, thus making the club a participant in the Catalan political situation. However, the president of the Barça club, Josep María Bartomeu, would not have agreed to this action in 2015.
At least that follows from a tweet from five years ago that, after the statement of support for Torra, has not taken long to go viral on Twitter.
Bartomeu is dotted with the newspaper library, which recalls that in his day, when he was acting president and he was campaigning for the club elections, He assured that he would not allow Barça to position themselves in politics.
“Barça is a Catalan and Catalan club but we don’t do politics. I will always confront whoever uses the club in a partisan way, “wrote the president in his day.
A tweet that has hundreds of retweets, almost all after the date it was written, since it returns to the tweeter time line every time Barcelona has spoken on the Catalan conflict in recent years.
