Rousaud makes stunning Barcelona cash claim; more resignations could follow

Former Barcelona vice-president Emiili Rousaud says more resignations could happen in the coming days.

Rousand and five other board members resigned at midnight last night, fed-up with the actions of president Josep Maria Bartomeu.

And speaking with RAC1, Rousand says beyond the six members of the board who have submitted their resignation, three others would be close to also doing so.

He also dropped the bombshell: "I think someone has had their hand in the (club's) till.

"You pay one million euros (to I3 Ventures) for a job that has a market price of 100,000 euros. Who? Definitely someone on the board, I don't know who, but you can have your suspicions..."

Rousand was referring to the social media scandal which engulfed Barca earlier this year amid denied claims of criticism of certain Barca players and identities.
