What Arthur has done is unacceptable - Bartomeu

what Arthur has done is unacceptable - Bartomeu

FC Barcelona president Josep Bartomeu has condemned Brazil international Arthur for his decision not to return to the club following mini-vacation in Brazil.

Barcelona gave their player's mini-vacation after La Liga came to end and players were allowed to travel to be with their family. It was a shock to them when Arthur who has already sealed a move away from the club to Juventus called to informed them he won't be returning for training and preparation for the Champions League against Napoli.

This is a kind of a disappointment for the club because they thought the player will be available for them in the Champions League and will see out the season with them.

Speaking with Sport, Bartomeu revealed how disappointed he is with Arthur and believe Arthur simply lacks respect for his team-mate.

'What Arthur has done shows a lack of respect for his team-mates because the team wants to do well in the Champions League,' Bartomeu said

'It is not logical that playing for such an important title, a player decides to remove himself. It is unjustifiable and totally incomprehensible.'

'We reached the agreement that until the Champions League ended he would continue playing for Barca, both in the league and in the Champions League. He is a player who has a certain importance in the team and who could help us.'

'But he did not appear from the return of the mini-vacations. It is an unacceptable act of indiscipline. And that is why we have opened a file for him, because there is no argument to justify his absence.'

'He called and said, 'I will not return, I will stay in Brazil'. It is his decision. No one has given him permission.'
