Josep Maria Bartomeu - Neymar Not Bigger Than Barcelona
7/8/2017

Barcelona President Josep Maria Bartomeu has told the midis that the departure of Neymar will in no way affect the club, insisting no player is bigger than the club after the dramatic departure of Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain.

Bartomeu insisted that Neymar left irrespective of their measures to keep he and said that the club will spend wisely this summer to replace him
"He wanted to leave," Bartomeu said of Neymar at the World Congress of Penyes. "We didn't agree with that decision but no player is bigger than Barca.
"We did not want Neymar to leave and that is why his clause was increased. Any decision was good for FCB, if he stayed we kept a great player and if he left we received a big amount.
"We want to close that chapter. Neymar has been part of our club but now he is history. It is his decision, even if we did all we could to keep him.


"We always acted with responsibility and we respect his decision even if we don't agree with it.
"Now we are looking for his replacements. The €222m that we received for Neymar Jr will be administered with prudence, rigour and serenity.
"People admire us as a club. Leo Messi, the best player ever, shall continue to lead this team. Messi's loyalty must be an example, or [Andres] Iniesta's.
"We will buy players. [Nelson] Semedo has been the first one but obviously more will arrive. This season we won't speak anymore about MSN but about a team.
"I want to say thank you to Luis Enrique and now it is time for supporting Ernesto Valverde."
