The former Barça institutional vice president, who resigned on Maundy Thursday along with five other directors, says that someone from the club could benefit economically in the scandal of the ‘fake’ accounts
Such is the chaos in which Barcelona is trapped that there is not a day when Josep Maria Bartomeu gets even closer to the precipice. On Maundy Thursday, six of the 19 directors of its board of directors resigned in bulk after the president pushed four of them out because of disloyalty. Emili Rousaud, former institutional vice president and who had been appointed heir to the easy chair, has suddenly become the great scourge of Bartomeu. To the point that this Friday, during an interview with the RAC1 station, he reported that someone from the club could benefit financially from the contracts signed by the company I3 Ventures in the so-called Barçagate.
“Honestly, I think someone has reached into the box. It is a dirty subject. If the external auditors say that these services have a market price of 100,000 euros and we have been paying a million, someone here has reached into the box. White and bottled. I don’t know at what level or if the president knew it. “
Rousaud was part of the club’s Adjudication commission, where the contract with I3 Ventures and its related companies had to pass if they had not been “cut into invoices of 200,000 euros to bypass the controls.” “There have been a series of irregularities. What we will not do is look the other way,” said the former manager.
Barcelona, after a turbulent meeting of the board in a restaurant in Sant Joan Despí in which critical managers demanded an electoral advance, commissioned the company PwC to carry out an audit. “It is practically finished. Possibly the president already knows what he says,” said Rousaud, linking to it Bartomeu’s invitation to leave the club. “This audit must be presented before the delegated commission. Of the six members, three invite us to leave [Enrique Tombas, Maria Teixidor y el propio Rousaud] and there are three others [el presidente Bartomeu, Jordi Cardoner y Jordi Moix]”
Barcelona, meanwhile, continues without moving a tab. Rousaud himself maintains that three other managers are considering his resignation. Bartomeu continues his exercise of survival, already extreme.
