What’s going on at Barça?

February 15, 2007

After Eto’o’s comments earlier in the week the club is eager to ensure that all looks right to the world. Eto’o was seen hugging Ronaldinho at training yesterday and it was all put down to misunderstanding on both sides.

But, is that all there is to it? Eto’o also mentioned to journalists that there were two factions inside the team, one of the pro the president and the other unspecified but presumably anti-Laporta. Sandro Rossell, previously Laporta’s buddy until their big falling out, has long been considered a contender, but he looked surprised at Eto’o’s comments and it seem unlikely that he is behind any kind of coup.

What is clear though is that all is not well behind the scenes at Barça. What it is we don’t know, but Eto’o’s outburst shows that there is a tide of discontent sweeping over the players.
