‘Barca in danger of economic bankruptcy and moral decay’


Barcelona have come under an astonishing attack from a presidential candidate looking to take over the club after he claimed the LaLiga giants are heading towards ‘economic bankruptcy and moral decay’.

Victor Font is the leader of the Si al futur group seeking to take control of the Nou Camp boardroom.
