FC Barcelona President Bartomeu Announces His Resignation

FC Barcelona's President Josep Maria Bartomeu has officially resigned from the post.

The decision was announced at a press briefing on Tuesday evening at Camp Nou, following a board meeting the day before. Bartomeu himself said on Monday that resigning from the club had "never crossed my mind".

​Bartomeu's term was supposed to end in March 2021, but the now-former Barcelona president came under pressure from club members.

Bartomeu has been criticised for Barca's worsening finances and poor performance last season. He was also blasted by Messi, who sought a transfer in July but failed to receive it. The Argentine forward then accused Bartomeu of lying to him, adding that "there has been no project or anything for a long time" in the club.
