Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu lashed out at midfielder Arthur after the last picked against coming back to the LaLiga side after a smaller than normal break in Brazil.
Barcelona are as of now outfitting to take on Napoli in the second leg of the Champions League Round of 16 conflict and they should do it without Arthur, who as indicated by Bartomeu, has ruled against connecting up with the group once more.
“What Arthur has done shows an absence of regard for his colleagues in light of the fact that the group needs to do well in the Champions League,” Bartomeu was cited as saying by Spanish media.
“It isn’t sensible that playing for such a significant title, a player chooses to expel himself. It is outlandish and absolutely boundless,” he included.
Arthur was before offered to Serie A monsters Juventus while Miralem Pjanic was moved to Barcelona. The two players were set to move to their separate new clubs toward the finish of the current crusade.
“We arrived at the understanding that until the Champions League finished he would keep playing for Barca, both in the class and in the Champions League. He is a player who has a specific significance in the group and who could support us,” Bartomeu said.
“Be that as it may, he didn’t show up from the arrival of the small scale excursions. It is an unsuitable demonstration of indiscipline. Also, that is the reason we have opened a record for him, in light of the fact that there is no contention to legitimize his nonattendance.
“He called and stated, ‘I won’t return, I will remain in Brazil’. It is his choice. Nobody has given him authorization,” he included.
