Aug 26, 2020 10:07 IST

After Lionel Messi made his decision of leaving his boyhood club Barcelona, hundreds of loyal fans protested outside the club's headquarters asking for president Josep Bartomeu's resignation. The angry fans want Messi to stay with the Catalan giants where he has spent over 19 years. The Spanish club is in the middle of its worst crisis after a trophy-less season, their first since 2008. The club had fired manager Quequi Setien and director of football Eric Abidal but the fans now want the club presidentJosep Bartomeu to resign. Earlier, the management also postponed the presidential elections at the club to a later date citing the Covid-19 pandemic.
