Mubarak Wakaso Signs For Chinese Club

Published

on

Ghanaian midfielder Mubarak Wakaso has completed his move to Chinese Super League side Jiangsu Suning.

Wakaso had been heavily linked with a move away from Spanish side Deportivo Alaves during the January transfer window, and the club have now officially confirmed his exit via their official Twitter page.

There is no confirmation on the details of a transfer fee paid between the two sides, however, it could be possible that Alaves have agreed to terminate his deal, which was due to expire in July 2020.

The 27-year old joined Alaves in 2017, after agreeing to end his contract with Greek side Panathinaikos, following previous spells at Elche, Villarreal, Espanyol, Celtic, Las Palmas and Granada.

Mubarak has been a regular in the Alaves side in the past 18 months, under both Abelardo Fernandez and Asier Gartitano, however, he has previously stated his desire not to sign a contract extension at the Estadio Mendizorroza.

Bartomeu finally resigns as Barcelona president

Published

on

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has resigned, with the entire board also stepping down from their posts.

Bartomeu’s decision comes after several months of criticism in the wake of Barcelona’s 8-2 Champions League elimination to Bayern Munich, as well as Lionel Messi’s shock request to leave the club shortly after.

Although the club was able to keep hold of Messi, with the longtime Barca star staying to avoid having to take the club to court, Bartomeu’s position has been under scrutiny for months.

The president had been due to officially end his tenure next year, with elections called for March, but the club’s members called for a vote of no confidence in an effort to get Bartomeu out immediately.

A total of 20,687 votes were gathered for the motion against Bartomeu, passing the threshold of 16,250 signatures required for the vote to go ahead.

The Barca board repeatedly tried to postpone the vote but, on Monday, local authorities rejected the club’s push to delay the proceedings.

As a result, the vote was set to go ahead in the coming weeks, but will no longer be necessary as Bartomeu and the board have stepped down.

Bartomeu originally joined Barca during Joan Laporta’s presidency and ascended to that role himself in January 2014.

He replaced Sandro Rosell, becoming the 40th President of Barcelona as he signed on to complete the rest of Rosell’s tenure following his resignation.

During his time in charge, Barca won La Liga four times as well as the 2014-15 Champions League, but his time in charge will largely be defined by the club’s failings in his final seasons.

Having struggled to find value in the transfer market since Neymar’s departure to join Paris Saint-Germain, Barca finished the 2019-20 season trophyless.

Their 8-2 loss to Bayern only furthered unrest, with Messi’s request to leave proving the final straw for the president.
