He has not yet taken charge of the club, there is no guarantee that he will get it at all. But before taking charge, Barcelona’s presidential candidate Tony Freixa gave a kind of warning to the biggest star of the club Lionel Messi.
Messi’s intention is clear, for the good of the club, he (Messi) must accept the decision to cut the salary. Former President Joseph Maria Bartheme left the burden of mountainous debt when he resigned last month. The new board will have to take responsibility for the payment.
The election for the presidency of Barcelona will be held in March next year. An interim board headed by Charles Tuskets is now running all of Barsa’s activities. He has already informed Messi that the world’s best footballer will not be given any special discount in terms of salary cut .
Almost the same tune club presidential candidate Tony Freixer. His voice sounded a little more. He has made it clear that if he wants to stay in Barcelona, Messi will have to accept the issue of deducting his salary. Freixa commented that not only Messi, but all members of the club should be flexible about salary cuts.
“We will sit quietly face to face with Messi in order to make the best decision for Barcelona,” Frexa told Spanish media El Corubito. All members of the club, including Messi (with whom the contract will be renewed or given a new contract) will be offered a new offer, which will not be equal to the salary they have received so far.
At the time of his departure, the Barcelona board of Barthelemy left behind a debt of 800 million euros (about 6,000 crore rupees). The interim board is planning to deduct about 1 billion euros from the salaries of the club’s players and other members to eliminate the club’s financial inconsistencies, including the repayment of the loan.
