At the time that Barça reached an agreement with its players to activate the ERTE that It will deduct 70% of the salaries of the footballers of the first team of Barça while the alarm state lasts, Leo Messi was writing a statement through Instagram in which he left a message to the board (“We are surprised that from within the club they tried to put us under the magnifying glass and tried to add pressure”) and gave a blow of effect when announcing that the players will make “contributions” so that Barça employees can collect “one hundred percent of their salary”. This is Messi’s official statement, obviously packed with content.“Much has been written and said about the FC Barcelona first team in terms of player salaries during this period of alarm. First of all, We want to clarify that our will has always been to apply a drop in the salary we receive, because we fully understand that this is an exceptional situation and we are the first ones who have ALWAYS helped the club when asked to do so.. Many times we have even done it on our own initiative at other times that we thought necessary or important. Thus It never ceases to amaze us that from within the club there were those who tried to put us under the magnifying glass and tried to add pressure to do something that we always knew we would do.. In fact, if the agreement has been delayed for a few days, it is simply because we were looking for a formula to help the club and its workers in these difficult times.For our part, the time has come to announce that, apart from the reduction of 70% of our salary during the state of alarm, we will also make contributions so that the club’s employees can collect one hundred percent of their salary for the duration of this situation.If we did not speak until now it was because the priority for us was to find solutions that were real to help the club, but also those who were going to be harmed the most by this situation.We do not want to say goodbye without sending an affectionate greeting and a lot of strength to all the culers who are having a hard time in these very difficult times, as well as to all those who patiently await the end of this crisis in their homes. Very soon we will get out of this and we will all do it together. Visca Barça and Visca Catalunya “.
