Josep Maria Bartomeu

Josep Bartomeu is a Spanish businessman and former President of Barcelona.

He served this role after being elected in 2015 after the club won its second ever treble in his interim tenure, filling in for Sandro Rosell, who resigned following the Neymar transfer saga.

Bartomeu served as the president for five years but as controversy against him kept piling, he could not hold the sword any longer, resigning like his predecessor.

He is, statistically, the most successful president of the club, lifting 13 trophies in his term. But during that time he also faced two votes of no confidence, public condemnation from players regarding a scandal where he paid journalists to criticise the senior members of the squad, and is currently being investigated for tax fraud over the signing of Neymar.
