10 years of FIF
He will because he loves the club, and we do have to remember that footballers have it pretty good. However, it'd be nice if Barcelona didn't ask some of the players who turned them into the global force that they have become over the last 15 years to take a pay cut over mutually-agreed contract terms because of the club's mismanagement, and figured out other ways of moving forward.
I think that's the point that is trying to be hit.
Exactly - Busi & Pique will take a pay cut and as you rightly point out, they do it for the love of the club and recognizing what it has already given them
And I agree, that ideally shouldn't ask your cantera players but similarly they should've never been on those wages to begin with. This, again, is the mismanagement of Bartomeu. I think there, it's a shame that our own board/President put the club in this predicament (I mean, honestly, I think he should be jailed/fined for his malfeasance) but I also believe our own players took advantage - surely they had to know it would never be sustainable to put them on 52M annual wages (Pique's rumoured wages)
