Bartomeu on Neymar exit: “No player is bigger than Barca”

Barcelona chief Josep Maria Bartomeu has said the club will recover from Neymar’s sale as “no player is bigger” than the Blaugrana.

“He wanted to leave,” Bartomeu told reporters. “We didn’t agree with that decision but no player is bigger than Barca. The €222m that we received for Neymar Jr will be administered with prudence, rigour and serenity. People admire us as a club. Lionel Messi, the best player ever, shall continue to lead this team”.
