The votes have been counted and validated and it seems the motion of no confidence was a success. Even though they’ve been trying to ignore it throughout the whole summer, even the local media had to react now.

Both of the biggest papers in Barcelona focused on that story this morning. SPORT presented the number of validated votes and asked the all-important question – resignation?

With 18.090 validated signatures – far more than the required 16.520 – the motion of no confidence was a success. But the work doesn’t stop here just yet.

The vote against president Josep Maria Bartomeu has to be held within the next 20 days. If that does happen, he will have to analyse the situation and decide whether to leave on his own, with some grace left, or wait to be banished.

Mundo Deportivo are, surprisingly, also reporting on the matter. Their title simply says ‘18,090‘ and it speaks volumes.

Barça are now waiting for the confirmation from the Catalan Government of the viability of voting in the pandemic. Once that goes through and everything is OK, the next steps will be taken.

It has been a long journey but it does seem like Bartomeu’s reign is coming to an end. Mundo Deportivo also shortly talked about Spain’s clash with Portugal and about Ousmane Dembélé’s future.

The Frenchman, as it seems, could be thinking about joining Juventus soon…

I’ve been a Barcelona fan for more than half of my life. What started as blind love is slowly turning into professional writing. Now, I get to write about Barca, analyse them, and voice my opinions on them across platforms. I’m happy to be a part of this big project.

In an interview with BeIN Sports, Ousmane Dembele spilled beans on various topics ranging from football to personal life. The interview was conducted before yesterday’s Clásico.

The French winger is reportedly a player who the new president, Joan Laporta, admires a lot. Even during his campaign, the Catalan lawyer raised the issue of Dembele’s renewal. The club has invested heavily in Dembele and has finally started to reap results.

When asked the question about his contract renewal, Dembele explained: “My future? I still have a year left on my contract. There have been no discussions with the club, I’m happy and I feel good.

“A new president has arrived and I don’t really know him, but he is very close to the players. We’ll see how it goes.”

In all the reports that have come out and interviews given by the young players, all of them have mentioned that the club captain, Lionel Messi shares an exceptional with this new generation of players.

On the same lines the World Cup winner said: “Messi gives confidence to the young players in the team and helps us a lot. He gives me advice.”

Dembele is said to be liking his new role up top in the newly found 3-5-2 system by Koeman. He jokingly said in the interview that the dressing room now relates him to Samuel Eto’o, a former Barça legend: “As I now play up top, they call me Samuel Eto’o in the dressing room.”

The Barça winger had an excellent season at Dortmund which led to multiple European giants going into a bidding war for him.

His strike partner during his days in Germany was Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, whom the Frenchman regarded as `his favorite teammate’. He also said that `Thomas Tuchel is his favorite coach’.
