The president of the Blaugrana institution referred to the departure of the Brazilian midfielder and his decision not to play the Champions League.
One of the best novels in the transfer window was Arthur Melo with Barcelona and his move to Juventus. This is what President Culé referred to, Josep María Bartomeu, who pointed strongly against the Brazilian.
In an interview with Sport, the president launched: “What Arthur did is a lack of respect for his teammates, because the team wants to do well in the Champions League. And also for the club. It is not logical that playing such a title importantly, a player decides to delete himself. It is unjustifiable and totally incomprehensible. “
Without wishing to stop, he continued: “We came to the agreement that until the Champions League ended, he would continue playing here. He is a player who has a certain importance in the team and who could help us.”
Finally, Bartomeu closed: “But he did not appear after the return of the mini-vacations. It is an unacceptable act of indiscipline. And so we opened a file for him, because there is no argument to justify his absence. He called and said that he would stay in Brazil. It is his decision nobody gave him permission. “
