Gelandang muda Barca ini senang bisa diturunkan Martino kontra Levante dan sukses mengalahkan lawannya itu.

Gelandang Barcelona Sergi Roberto mengaku girang dengan respon yang ditunjukkan timnya saat menghadapi permainan defensif tuan rumah Levante dalam leg pertama perempat-final Copa del Rey tengah pekan lalu.

Barca menang telak 4-1 atas Levante dengan Cristian Tello mencetak hat-trick plus tambahan gol bunuh diri Juan Garcia. Kemenangan ini sekaligus memperbaiki catatan mereka di pekan sebelumnya yang hanya bermain 1-1 menghadapi tim yang sama di La Liga Spanyol.

“Kami tahu bahwa kami akan menghadapi tim yang defensif, tapi kami mampu bereaksi dengan baik. Memimpin terlebih dahulu sungguh krusial, ini membuka ruang lebih bagi kami untuk membuat peluang,” ujar Roberto di laman resmi Barca.

“Saya seharusnya bisa melakukan dua tembakan, tapi saya memilih untuk mengumpannya. Namun yang terpenting kami menang. Saya senang Tata Martino memberikan kepercayaan kepada saya,” ujar gelandang berusia 21 tahun ini yang sudah tampil di 18 kompetisi di semua ajang musim ini.

Sandro Rosell

Rosell disebut akan segera meletakkan jabatannya sebagai presiden klub.

Beberapa laporan di media Spanyol hari ini menyebutkan bahwa presiden Barcelona Sandro Rosell akan segera mengundurkan diri.

Hal itu terungkap pada Kamis (23/1) ini dengan pimpinan Blaugrana itu yang harus memenuhi panggilan sidang Pengadilan Tinggi guna menjawab pertanyaan atas tuduhan penyalahgunaan dana.

Diduga sebelumnya bahwa Rosell mengambil keuntungan pribadi dari transfer seorang Neymar yang hengkang dari Santos ke Camp Nou.

Dan menurut beberapa sumber, termasuk media yang berbasis di Barcelona Mundo Deportivo, sang presiden akan segera mengundurkan diri pada hari ini.

Sebuah pertemuan dewan direksi kabarnya juga akan dihelat hari ini pukul 18:00 waktu setempat.

Sandro Rosell Tinggalkan Barcelona?

Sandro Rosell

Sandro Rosell memilih mundur menyusul pengusutan pengadilan atas kesepakatan transfer Neymar.

Hanya selang sehari setelah perintah pengadilan memeriksa dokumen transfer Neymar, Sandro Rosell mengundurkan diri sebagai presiden Barcelona dalam rapat luar biasa yang digelar Kamis (24/1) petang waktu setempat.

Proses pengusutan diperintahkan oleh Hakim Pablo Ruz setelah menerima petisi yang diajukan fans sekaligus socio Barcelona, Jordi Cases. Beberapa waktu belakangan Cases mempertanyakan kesepakatan komersil yang ditempuh Rosell, salah satunya transfer Neymar yang melibatkan kompensasi sebesar €57,1 juta.

Belakangan, seperti dilansir El Mundo Deportivo, terungkap nilai kesepakatan yang sebenarnya melambung hingga mencapai €95 juta karena ada kesepakatan-kesepakatan lain di luar perekrutan sang pemain dari Santos. Perusahaan yang dibentuk Neymar dan ayahnya, Neymar & Neymar, terlibat langsung dalam kesepakatan itu dan Rosell memilih tidak menjawab pertanyaan Cases tentang nilai riil yang dikucurkan Barcelona guna mendanai transfer.

Persoalan pun dibawa ke persidangan dan hakim setuju memeriksa dokumen terkait transfer Neymar meski belum merasa perlu memanggil Rosell untuk menjadi saksi.

Pergolakan tak ayal terjadi di kalangan anggota Barcelona sehingga mereka merasa perlu menggelar rapat luar biasa. Hasilnya, dalam konferensi pers yang turut dihadiri empat kapten Barcelona, Rosell mengajukan pengunduran diri melalui pertemuan yang nyaris berlangsung selama dua setengah jam. Kendali klub untuk selanjutnya dipegang Josep Maria Bartomeu yang menjabat sebagai wakil presiden hingga pemilihan presiden berikutnya.

Dengan demikian berakhir sudah kiprah Rosell sebagai presiden ke-39 Barcelona yang terpilih 2010 lalu dan seharusnya bertugas memegang mandat hingga 2016.

Presiden Barcelona Sandro Rosell Mengundurkan Diri

The top two teams in La Liga, with 49 points each, go head to head at the Vicente Calderón

Everyone iwill be there, including top scorers Diego Costa and Messi, the recovered Neymar and the pardoned Juanfran



The big day has arrived. Although this is only the halfway stage of the current league campaign, Saturday’s game (20.00 CET, Canal Plus) could have a huge bearing on the eventual outcome. The Vicente Calderón is the venue, and Atlético Madrid and FC Barcelona are the teams, first and second in the table and both on 49 points. Things just don’t get any closer than that.

Neymar is back

Both teams go into the match with all of their main stars available. Leo Messi is back for Barça, fresh from scoring two midweek goals against Getafe, and Neymar has recovered from a bout of gastroenteritis that kept him out of that game. But with all of Cesc, Alexis and Pedro in fine form, it is unclear what kind of attack Tata Martino is going opt to field.
Unbeaten at the Calderón

Diego Simeone probably has less to think about when it comes to picking his starting elven. Atlético Madrid can practically field their strongest possible side now that the Competition Committee has decided to withdraw the yellow card shown to Juanfran in Malaga, which in theory meant he was going to be suspended for this game. Diego Costa, one of the most impressive players in the Spanish championship this season, is ready for action, as is former FC Barcelona man David Villa, who scored against his former team-mates in the preseason Supercup. Only Mario Suárez, who has been out injured for some time, is missing from the home line-up.

Atlético Madrid have won all nine games played in their stadium this season. Barça have won 2-1 on their last three trips to the Calderón, but against one of the finest Atlético teams we have seen for many a year, Saturday night’s visit promises to be the toughest challenge of all.

On January 8 1984, Diego Maradona returned from injury to score twice at the Camp Nou
This Wednesday, Messi repeated the feat with his brace against Getafe

Maradona - Messi

Diego Armando Maradona and Leo Messi have plenty in common - they are both Argentineans, are amongst the best players ever and have played for FC Barcelona. It's not just the big things though and on Wednesday another small coincidence was thrown up.

On 8 January 1984,at the Camp Nou, Diego Armando Maradona made his comeback after a serious injury he'd picked up a few months before at San Mames. It was the first game of the year and Barça were playing Seville - Maradona started, playing for 68 minutes - and scored twice in the 3-1 win

After teh game, Maradona declared: “I'm really happy. Mne was a good performance, but I have to thank my team mates who made it easy for me, and especially the warm reception from the fans. No matter how many goals I score, I'll never be able to repay that love from the crowd".

Exactly 30 years later, the story was repeated, with Leo Messi grabbing the headlines. The Argentinean had been out since November and came off the bench in teh Cup game against Getafe for the last 30 minutes to score two goals in a memorable cameo.

Similar sentiments

In his after match comments, Messi also echoed Maradona, explaining: "Whilst the fans show their love for me, I want to play out my career here at Barça", whislt also praising his teammates: "the squad has shown how good it is. Whoever plays, we put in a performance - this is a squad of players who stand up to the mark".

It was also against Getafe - on April 18, 2007 - that Messi scored a copy of Maradona's famous goal against England in 1986, when he dribbled through half the team from his own half to fire home.

The Penya Barcelonista Mashariki was officially presented this Friday in Nairobi during an event that was attended by President Sandro Rosell
Sandro Rosell

The first Kenyan supporters club was made official this Friday. The presentation ceremony of the Mashariki Supporters Club, which took place at the Westlands Capital Club (Nairobi), was attended by FC Barcelona President Sandro Rosell, Mashariki Supporters Club President Steven Othoro, social representatives and members of the local authorities. The presentation ceremony was sponsored by Qatar Airways, the Club’s global partner.

The creation of a supporters club in Kenya falls in line with the Club’s global strategy. Africa’s love of football, a continent that has produced such fine footballers like Alex Song, Seydou Keita and Samuel Eto’o, among many others, exemplifies the unity and diversity of the Club and the global spirit of the sport.

New official supporters clubs in Africa

FC Barcelona have nine official supporters clubs in Africa: Nigeria (Penya Barça de Lagos Club); South Africa (Mzansi Penya Barcelonista); Senegal (Penya Blaugrana de la Casamance); Gambia (Sambou’s Barça Fans Club); Tangier, Morocco (Penya Barcelonista de Tànger); Tetuan, Morocco (Penya Barca Tétouani); El Jadida, Morocco (Association Penya Mazagan FCB); Morocco (Penya Blaugrana Aït Nsar), and Casa Anfa, Morocco (Gent Blaugrana d’Anfa).
