FC BarcelonaThe opinion
ANDhe coronavirus has left the economy of football clubs, of all, very affected. Many fear for their survival. HeBarcelonaIt is not an exception and it is also suffering from the consequences of the pandemic, hence the Barça entity has been forced to take drastic measures with a reduction in wages included through an ERTE. The sections (basketball, handball, roller hockey and futsal) through their captains have given their O.K. in the last hours to lower 70 percent of the chip. All of them ensure that it is time to help the institution. On the other hand, the confirmation of the first football team is missing, precisely the one that charges the most.
“I believe, on a personal basis, that there is nothing to do but support the club and help in whatever it takes to overcome such a difficult moment among ALL,” he wrote.Victor Tomás. “The least of it is ours, but it is clear that if we can help the club, then we will help”, he commentedSergio Lozano. Aitor EgurrolaIt was very clear: “Given the needs of the club that has given us so much, it is time to make an effort.” YTomicIt has also been blunt: “It is not a heroic act to give up a part, compared to what people who earn less are going through.”
The men ofQuique SetiénThey have not refused to give up part of their income, but, for the moment, they have not accepted the club’s proposal, which their colleagues have done. The footballers continue to negotiate and the talks continue, they are not blocked, but the truth is that they are not going well. It is normal that they do not like to touch their pockets, it happens to all of us, but the fact that the professionals of the sections have gone ahead of them leaves them in a very bad place.
Anyway, it seems logical to think that those ofSetienthey will end up committing. It is true that some are showing solidarity with donations in a private capacity, but now it is the club that is asking for an effort. The entity, however, is willing to execute the ERTE with or without its approval. Even if it was just for image, it should be with his O.K.
