Bartomeu resigns as Barcelona president as entire board steps down

The president of Barca has finally resigned amidst the ongoing criticism and a looming vote of no confidence

Barcelona’s president Josep Maria Bartomeu has resigned and the entire board is also stepping down from their positions.

This came after Bartomeu was criticized following the 8-2 loss against Bayern Munich  which saw the elimination of Barcelona at the Champions League.

The president tenure was due to end next year but the club’s members called for a vote of no confidence in an effort to get Bartomeu out immediately.

A total of 20,687 votes were gathered for the motion against Bartomeu, passing the threshold of 16,250 signatures required for the vote to go ahead.

He replaced Sandro Rosell, becoming the fortieth President of Barcelona as he signed on to complete the rest of Rosell’s tenure following his resignation.
