What’s next after this ad

Appointed as Barca’s director of football in 2021, Mateu Alemany will step down in June, as announced by the Catalan club on Tuesday evening. A revelation to say the least astonishing and which has aroused many tensions among the club’s supporters, satisfied with the collaboration carried out so far between the person concerned and Jordi Cruyff, sporting director of the club.

This Wednesday, the Padlock Cope reveals that this departure of Mateu Alemany would be partly linked to… Lionel Messi. Indeed, if the rumor of a return of the Argentinian is gaining more and more momentum in Barcelona in recent days, the director of Catalan football has never validated this lead. Unlike president Joan Laporta, Alemany was not in favor of Messi returning, seeing his potential return as a drag on the club’s finances. The Iberian publication adds that the lack of visibility on sports planning was another reason for this impromptu departure.
