In the last few matches, Real Madrid have overturned a 2 point deficit into a 4 point lead.
And Barcelona president, Josep Maria Bartomeu has attempted to deflect the blame entirely from his team’s substandard and inconsistent displays by pointing the gun at VAR.
Real Madrid have admittedly been on the beneficial end of a few controversial VAR decisions, but the Galacticos have indeed done competitively better as well. Bartomeu was having none of it, however.
“I watched San Mames match until almost the end of the second half,” Bartomeu said after Barca’s victory. “I feel bad because we have the best league in the world and VAR after coronavirus isn’t fair.
“It has changed some results and always favours the same team.”
Maybe VAR has helped Real Madrid pick a few extra point coincidentally. However, the title was Barcelona’s to lose coming back from the CoVID-19 break and that is exactly what they have done.
Disappointing defeats and dull draws were the fault of the club, the manager and the players and it is more than clear to loyal Barcelona fans that Bartomeu needs to be the first to leave the club, if we are to get back to the top.
