Barcelona face corruption charges over payments to former referees' official

Recommended Posts

Barcelona face charges of corruption over payments the club made to Jose Maria Enriquez Negreira - a former vice-president of Spain's referees' committee.

It emerged last month that Barca paid Negreira and a company he owns a reported total of 8.4m euros (£7.4m) between 2001 and 2018.

A Barcelona court heard on Friday that Barca, former club officials and Negreira had been indicted for "corruption", "breach of trust" and "false business records".

These lawsuits, brought by the Barcelona public prosecutor's office, target the club, as well as former presidents Josep Maria Bartomeu and Sandro Rosell.

"More than a club" wankers, they ruled football for a few years and everyone was hanging out the back of them, paying money they couldn't afford, looks like they were paying off officials too and all the while telling the story that they were the perennial held backs. Cannot stand them.
