Barca President Continues Spat With Neymar
FC Barcelona President Continues Spat Neymar
FC Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has continued his war of words with Brazil international Neymar.
There has been a lot of tension between the two men ever since the 25-year-old's €222 million (R3.4 billion) world record move to Paris Saint-Germain in the latest transfer window.
In an interview with a Spanish television station, Bartomeu, who expected Neymar to sign a new deal with the club, slammed the Brazilian and his team for their lack of honesty at wanting to leave the Camp Nou.
"We believed them (Neymar and his advisers) too much," Bartomeu told La2.
"When a player wants to leave, he must be honest, as Alexis (Sanchez), Pedro (Rodriguez) or Cesc (Fabregas) did. We will not hurt a player that is not happy."
The Blaugrana chief also touched on captain Andres Iniesta's future at the club.
"He will decide how long he wants to stay," Bartomeu added.
"We want to him to stay with the club and have a special contract because he deserves to decide when he wants to leave.
"He is an inspiration for all and symbolises what we all want for the club.
He is playing well and helping the team, and I think he is closer to telling us 'yes'."
