Bartomeu’s Surprise Appearance

Josep Bartomeu’s appearance at the Estadio Municipal de Deportes de Barbastro during Barcelona’s Copa del Rey match has sparked mixed reactions among the club’s supporters. Despite being blamed for the club’s poor financial state and various controversies during his time as president, Bartomeu was seen in the stands alongside Barcelona fans.
