Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has slammed Barcelona board, he it’s a shame that the board spent money to criticize the players.

He also added that he persuaded Lionel Messi to stay for one more season to get a proper farewell.

It’s a disgrace that the board has spent money to criticize us”Pique said.

I’ve personally asked Messi to hold his contract termination until he gets the farewell in front of the fans; he deserves it.

I’ve always been surprised how people like Guardiola, Puyol, Xavi and Valdés are not in the club when you have to hold such icons, they are a part of the good history.

It’s shameful how the same people (criticizing the players) still work for the club”

Few months ago Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu was accused of corruption by Catalan police, he was alleged to have had a role in “BARCAGATE”.
