Xavi Blames Referee Decisions On Barcelona's Corruption Case

Former Barcelona head coach, Xavi, has voiced his belief that the recent red card decision against Barcelona’s player Vitor Roque is a consequence of the club’s involvement in the Jose Maria Enriquez Negreira corruption case. Roque, a young Brazilian forward, was sent off during Barcelona’s 3-1 victory over Alaves after receiving two yellow cards in quick succession.

Xavi, who recently announced his departure from Barcelona at the end of the season, stated that referee Martinez Munuera’s decision to dismiss Roque was directly linked to the corruption case concerning payments made to Negreira, the former vice-president of Spanish football’s refereeing committee, between 2001 and 2018. Xavi expressed his disappointment with the referee’s ruling and urged the league to allow fair competition.

Barcelona, currently sitting third in La Liga standings, will face Granada in their next match on February 11.
