Barcelona’s President, Josep Bartomeu has resigned his appointment after six years as the club’s president.
He announced his resignation of the Board of Directors of FC Barcelona on Tuesday at a press conference.
His departure could potentially factor into whether Messi ultimately decides to leave the club next summer after pushing for a move this past summer.
The end of Bartomeu’s tenure has been marked by poor results, none more than last season’s 8-2 loss to Bayern Munich in UCL, while also failing miserably on numerous transfers that just haven’t worked out.
Bartomeu became president in January of 2014, with the team winning UCL and La Liga that season following the presidency of Sandro Rosell
