Bartomeu: “Anyone who quibbles about Turan doubts the coach”
The Barcelona presidential candidate ruled out signing Pogba this year at an event in Sant Cugat.
Barcelona presidential candidate Josep Maria Bartomeu, standing for re-election, spoke this evening about Arda Turan, with the club on the verge of announcing the Turkish player’s signing. Specifically he referenced Agustí Benedito, another presidential candidate, and one who has spoken out against signing the player. “There’s a pre-candidate who says he has other ideas. That means he doubts Luis Enrique”, said Bartomeu.
The former president also ruled out signing Pogba this year, saying the club's planning didn’t include that as an option.
Bartomeu also talked about his presidential campaign: “We don’t make any noise, but we aren’t scared of anyone. And little by little, in every aspect, we’re being proved right”.
