Eduard Romeu, the economic vice president of FC Barcelona, has resigned from his position this Thursday, the club confirmed in an official statement.

“FC Barcelona informs that Mr. Eduard Romeu, Vice-President of the Club’s Economic Area, has tendered his resignation to President Joan Laporta on the grounds of incompatibility with his full dedication to his professional work,” the statement read.

“President Laporta has accepted the resignation while thanking him for his work at the head of the Club’s Economic Area, focused on the development of the viability plan put in place during this mandate and which has managed to reverse the financial situation of the institution.”

Romeu played a crucial role in Barcelona being able to cut down their salary bill to an extent during Laporta’s term as club president.

His resignation is another in line of a number of high-profile executives stepping down from their positions during the current board’s tenure.

President Laporta will be holding a press conference later today to discuss the changes in the club’s structure where more clarity on Romeu’s departure will likely be given.
