Really poor management from the board. It all started with Rosell (who’s now in prison) who prioritised marquee signings over La Masia. He never got on with Cruyff or many of the old guard So he pretty much sought to undo all of their hard work.
Bartomeu is pretty much another clueless owner that doesn’t respect the manager or the youth system, which is aptly summed up by them paying €40m for Paulinho and now panicking to get Coutinho/ Dembele (neither will solve the fundamental issues).
Matter of time before he is ousted to be honest, the club has turned in to Real Madrid pre 2014 with their transfer and marketing strategy. Most of the old guard at the club (supporters I know and assume some of the players) absolutely hate the board. Real Madrid are MUCH better run now, which really says something haha
