Barcelona President Apologises to fans
Barcelona President Apologises to fans over Bayern Munich (8-2) defeat which knocked the Spanish giants out of the 2020 UEFA champions League
Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has confirmed that ‘decisions will be made’ at the club over the next week following his side’s humbling 8-2 defeat to Bayern Munich on Friday evening.
The Catalan giants were completely torn apart by their German opponents in the Champions League quarter final, suffering their heaviest defeat since 1951.
Speaking to Barcelona’s official website, Bartomeu said:
“It has been a very, very tough night.
I am sorry for the Barça fans and members, for the players, for everyone.
We were not the club that we represent, I am so sorry.”
Having endured a poor conclusion to their league campaign – finishing runner up to rivals Real Madrid in La Liga – and exiting the Copa del Rey at the quarter final stage, this is the first season since 2007/08 that Barcelona have failed to win a trophy.
Manager Quique Setién was not considered the club’s first choice when they drafted him in in January.
His future has long been in doubt, and the humiliating Champions League exit will have done little to aid his job security.
There are some decisions that we had already made, and others that we will make over the next few days,” Bartomeu added.
“Announcements will be made from next week, we need to make decisions after things have calmed down.
“It was a devastating result.
I congratulate Bayern, they played a great game and deserved to go to the semi-finals. We were not up to the occasion, and we can only apologise to the members and fans.”
