According to Cadena Ser, a group of club socios are preparing to launch a vote of no confidence against the current Barcelona board of directors run by president Josep Maria Bartomeu.
Socio member Josep María Cremada told Cadena Ser: “We need almost 18,000 signatures. We are a transversal group, with no one behind us. The club’s management by the board is totally unacceptable, We already have between 2,000 and 5,000 signatures for the motion.”
The management has been held responsible for Barcelona’s recent failures in domestic and international competitions. Also, the club is heavily criticized for the management of transfers in the latest seasons. Despite the campaigns against him, however, Bartomeu has no intention to resign.
The upcoming presidential election is scheduled for 2021 and will elect a new president for 6 years. It is known that former president Joan Laporta will run for the presidency. Victor Font, another candidate, is also on the list of potential upcoming presidents.

Video: Barcelona vs Alavés — Match Preview
Barcelona take on Alavés in Matchday 6 of La Liga Santander, following a wonderful display and victory over Juventus midweek, in the Champions League. But Ronald Koeman’s side have already dropped big points in the league this season, and know that anything other than 3 points against the Basque outfit would be disastrous for our title aspirations.
This should be another good opportunity for Barça to showcase their abilities once more and build on that performance against Juventus, as Alavés are a considerably weaker side to the sort of opposition that the Catalans have had to face so far this campaign.
Having said that, Pablo Machín’s men will try and make life difficult for Barça, similar to what Getafe did, and Alavés will feel confident that with the right sort of game-plan, they can make Koeman’s side slip up in La Liga once more.
