Rift in Barcelona dressing room over pay cut demands

Rift in Barcelona dressing room over pay cut demands

FC Barcelona woes seem not to be ending soon after it emerged that there is a rift growing up in the club’s dressing room.

The board wants the players to take another pay cut and according to Marca, the move is not sitting well with the players.

The reports indicate that some players have been accused of putting their individual interests before the collective this after the club handed Gerard Pique, Clement Lenglet, Frenkie de Jong and Marc-Andre ter Stegen new deals just after their Champions League win over Ferencvaros.

It is claimed that the move has angered some players in the team with a chunk of the players signing a letter to reject the plans for pay cuts. The letter, however, was not signed by all the players with Pique being one of the players to sign the letter only to sign a contract extension to 2024.

The club board and the players were set to hold pay-cut negotiations on Wednesday but the players said they would not attend such a meeting after they were expected for a round table meet-up.
