Former Barcelona basketball star slams Barcelona players
Former Barcelona basketball star Juan de la Cruz has accused the club’s football players not doing enough to prevent Lionel Messi’s departure.
Many Barcelona fans believe that the exit of their greatest player could have been avoided if the situation had been dealt with differently, an opinion which De la Cruz shares.
A number of Barcelona players kissed the badge during their 4-2 triumph over Real Sociedad, which led to De la Cruz criticising their actions on Twitter following a traumatic couple of weeks.
“Now they all kiss the badge!” De la Cruz wrote.
“And their salaries? Now everyone is talking about pay cuts!”
His post came after Gerard Pique’s decision to take a significant pay cut, with Barcelona’s enormous wage bill having prevented Messi from signing a new contract.
