Ex-Barcelona president Laporta slams Bartomeu: Cowardice and ineptitude

Former Barcelona president Joan Laporta has slammed the current board after last night's Champions League humiliation.

Laporta accused Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu of "cowardice and ineptitude" in the wake of their 8-2 defeat to Bayern Munich.

Laporta tweeted: "After this very painful defeat, the statements of President Bartomeu are, once again, a sign of cowardice and ineptitude.

"The incompetence of him and his board disqualifies them from making more decision that condition Barca's future."

Laporta was Barcelona's president between 2003 and 2010 during which time they won four LaLiga titles, the Spanish Cup and the Champions League twice.
