Here is a new controversy which FC Barcelona would have gone well. In the grip of financial concerns that threaten the approval of the contracts of its summer recruits and the extension of Lionel Messi (see the brief of 1:06 pm), the Catalan club must in addition deal with the buzz generated by a video on which we can hear his forwards Ousmane Dembélé (24 years old, 44 games and 11 goals in all competitions for the 2020-2021 season) and Antoine Griezmann (30 years old, 51 games and 20 goals in all competitions for the 2020-2021 season) make fun of Japanese employees in ‘a hotel on a tour in 2019.
This Tuesday, Hiroshi Mikitani, the founder and CEO of the Japanese group Rakuten, main sponsor of the blaugrana club, reacted on his Twitter account: “As sponsor and organizer of the club tour, I am so sorry that the FCB players have made discriminatory comments. As Rakuten has supported Barca’s philosophy and sponsored the club, such statements are unacceptable under any circumstances and we will officially protest the club to get their point of view. “
The two French internationals apologized on Monday (see yesterday’s brief at 4:58 p.m.).
