“The management didn’t inform anything about Arthur leaving. What is happening to Arthur is abnormal. In these situations the players must understand that the season is not over and try to leave the best possible memory.

“I don’t take Arthur’s departure for granted, the club hasn’t told me so.”, he added.

Everyone has some kind of passion. For me, it is FC Barcelona. I started to write stories about the club I support in 2017, and have been lucky enough to be part of such a wonderful team.
