At the heart of the controversy is the alleged misuse of funds by Laporta and his team during his time as president. According to reports, Laporta is accuse of using club money to pay off his personal debts, as well as those of his associates. These allegations are particularly damning given the ongoing financial struggles of the club. Which has been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic and is currently in dire need of funds.

For Carreno, the situation is simply unacceptable. In his scathing commentary, he argues that Barcelona fans have a right to be angry. That Laporta and his team need to be held accountable. He notes that fans have long been critical of the club’s leadership and that this latest scandal only confirms their worst fears.

What did Joan Laporta say?

What’s particularly striking about Carreno’s commentary is his unwavering commitment to his audience. Throughout his segment, he repeatedly stresses that fans are not “stupid” and that they deserve better from their leaders. He notes that Barcelona is one of the most successful and beloved football clubs. The world and its fans have shown unwavering loyalty over the years.

At the same time, however, he also argues that this loyalty should not be taken for granted. He notes that fans are increasingly frustrated with the direction of the club. That there is a growing sense that things are not going to get better anytime soon. For Carreno, the only way to turn things around is to hold Laporta and his team accountable for their actions.

Of course, it remains to be what will happen in the wake of these allegations. Laporta has denied any wrongdoing, and the case is currently being investigated by the Spanish authorities. However, it’s clear that Carreno’s commentary has struck a nerve with fans of Barcelona and football more broadly.
