Ex-Barca President Confesses Doing Business With Negreira

Former Barcelona President, Sandro Rosell has confessed doing business with Negreira, a referee alleged of receiving bribe to aid the Catalans club win La liga matches.

Despite, the current FC Barcelona, Joan Laporta insisted that the allegations are far from the truth.

Reacting to this issue ,Sandro Rosell said, “Negreira? Of course I knew who he was. He did referee reports for us. All the big teams in the world use referee reports.

“There has been a huge fuss, as happens every four or five years at Barça. Cases come out. The thing about the Masia boys came out, now this one, and in a few years another one will come out .

“Nobody has done an analysis that if we paid about 400,000 euros a year, we made about 100 reports, which would be about 4,000 euros per match report. 4,000 euros for a referee report that can save you from a yellow card or a penalty”.

Rosell further explained that “The bribery thing is fantastic because you must be a public official and they have just twisted it because after the investigations they have not found anything .

“Show me a game where the referee helped us. I can show many where he did not help us. We have lost the league in the last game due to an error recognized by the referee.

“A very simple thing has been made into a ball. He made reports, yes, he was paid, yes, normal. What influence did he have? Zero. When people say this they are questioning all the first-class referees and second division. In this country we are very used to killing the person and then asking if they were guilty.”
