FC Barcelona statement
FC Barcelona would like to state that we consider that recent statements by agent Mino Raiola are unacceptable as he has again questioned the honour and moral integrity of our first-team coach Josep Guardiola and that of Johan Cruyff.
The statements were published in Swedish newspaper 'Expressen' and reproduced extensively by
numerous agencies and international media outlets.
For this reason, the FC Barcelona legal department is considering taking legal measures
against Mr. Raiola, including taking him to court. With immediate effect FC Barcelona is blocking
all pending payments to Mr. Raiola in relation to his contractual agreements with the club.
