Jordi Mestre, sports vice president of Barça, resigned this Wednesday from his post, according to different press reports not confirmed by EFE, for "discrepancies" with the sports area of the sports board. According to "Mundo Deportivo", Mestre, manager of Barça since 2010, has already communicated his decision to his board members. The resignation does not have to do with differences with the sport area formed by Pep Segura, Eric Abidal and Ramón Planes, nor by discrepancies with Bartomeu.
According to "Sport", Mestre communicated his decision in a meeting in which Javier Bordas, Xavier Vilajoana and Silvio Elías were present, after a meeting in which "sparks have jumped by the policy of signings and the decisions taken by the head of responsibility, Pep Segura ", general sports manager of Barça football and who has always defended Mestre.
Catalunya Radio assures that Mestre's decision is due to "internal issues of the board". Different sources of FC Barcelona has not confirmed to EFE the resignation of the sports vice president. In the event that the resignation is confirmed, it would be the fourth of a vice president of the Barça entity after Susana Monge, in charge of the economic area and who resigned in November 2016, Carles Vilarrubí, vice president of the institutional area, who left his post in October 2017, and that of Manel Arroyo, vice president of marketing and who left office in July 2018.
Mestre was one of those in charge of presenting to the media the first signing of the course, the Dutchman Frenkie de Jong, at a press conference scheduled for next Friday. The businessman has just been named president of the Hoteliers Guild of Barcelona.
