The last months were terrible for FC Barcelona and when tranquility seemed to return to the club, a new Burofax puts the internal of FC Barcelona in check. In addition to dividing the squad in two, the fans have already taken sides with one of the sides and Messi would again be harmed by this new problem. The low salary was what caused this new problem.
FC Barcelona had asked its players to lower their salary by 30% since with the Covid pandemic the club could not afford such an expense. Of the 24 players on the squad, 20 came forward against this decision and decided to send a Burofax to be paid their full salaries.
Dest, Ter Stegen, Lenglet and De Jong are the four players who did not sign the Burofax and generated a big problem in the internal of FC Barcelona. Ter Stegen and Lenglet were the two players who did not agree, largely because they must renew their contracts, and Dest and De Jong had no other option since they just arrived in Barcelona and it was stipulated in their contract.
The FC Barcelona fans took sides for one of the two sides and proclaimed themselves against the decision led by Lionel Messi and Pique. The fans were very angry with this decision on social media, believing that they should show solidarity with the club because their salaries are very high. The anger of the fans is because they maintain that with 30% less than their salary they can continue to live a life of luxury.
