Fans’ Banners in UCL Final Put Barcelona Under Investigation

Barcelona might have to struggle extra effort for defending their UEFA Champions League title. UEFA reportedly are investigating their fans’ banners during UCL final match against Juventus. The banners indicated political use and also the independence chant was heard during this match. Blaugrana might have to pay €50,000 fine and face a “partial closure of a part of the stands at the Camp Nou for the first Champions League match of next season” according to Publico. That penalty is based on “the airing of independence chants and the massive presence of stellate flags” in the final match where the Catalan triumphed with 3-1 win over Italian Champions Juventus.

Barca’s dominance in European level is proven with their fourth Champions League title. This is the club’s highest achievement in ten years where the club managed to repeat its treble winners this year after League title and the Copa Del Rey victory. During the final match against Italian giant Juventus, Ivan Rakitic, Luis Suarez and Neymar sealed the Catalan victory. With this achievement, Luis Enrique has the possibility to be nominated as the club’s most successful manager.

Another report by Marca states that the fine might reach €60,000 and Barcelona probably have to face UEFA’s disciplinary committee on July 23. The issue is getting louder due to Barcelona’s presidential elections led by Josep Maria Bartomeu, the current chief and Joan Laporta, the former president. Laporta in his campaign has the ideal of the Catalunya’s independence from Spain.

“My project is catalanista and committed to the idea of it being a country in every sense. If Catalunya becomes independent Barca won’t be lost in the world. We’re committed to the process of Catalunya becoming independent,” Said Laporta in his interview with AS’ Moises Llorens. A rumor has it that UEFA started their investigation following an incident where Barca and Athletic Bilbao fans booed the Spanish national anthem during May’s Copa del Rey.

This incident is expected to have a little impact on Barca side. A series of incidents like transfer ban, tax crime and other problems have struck Barca’s players. Yet, their dominance in the domestic and European competitions remains stable. A few fine or stands limitation will not affect the club’s finance. Xavi has retired and some players like Iniesta are already old however the current team has many back-ups. Furthermore, Barca will have a chance to strengthen its power as the transfer ban ends in the January 2016 transfer window.
