Before the league game against FC Cádiz, they demanded the resignation of Vereit President Joan Laporta on the Esplanade in front of the stadium.
“Laporta resignation” and “Barca, that’s we,” you sang again and again. The fan association “Nostra Ensenya” had called for protest. Media estimated the number of participants to 100 to 200. Another ultra-grouping, “Grada d’Animacio”, had even called the boycott of the encounter.
On Instagram “Nostra Ensenya” designated the large number of guest fans at the game, in which Eintracht Barca threw out the competition as a humiliation. The Association raises Club Boss Joan Laporta to allow this for financial reasons and thus also brought the “physical integrity” of the home fans “in danger”. Meanwhile, Laporta announced a press conference for April 19 (12:00 pm), in which he wants to give a clarifying opinion on the events.
The coach Xavi had also criticized the unusually strong presence of the guest fans. This had played a role in the defeat, said the former clubprofi. “The players did not feel well, which does not mean we were not good. But it has negatively influenced us.”
Laporta had already announced to sell only personalized tickets in the future at international games. In the stadium of the Catalans, more than 30,000 Eintracht fans were, although FC Barcelona had sold only 5000 tickets to Germany according to their own data.
