Barcelona chief executive Ferran Reverter resigns

Barcelona chief executive Ferran Reverter has resigned after just seven months in the role at Camp Nou.

The Catalan club said on Tuesday that he has left for “personal and family reasons”.

According to Marca, Reverter’s departure is related to disagreements with the club over the new sponsorship deal with Spotify, which will earn Barcelona €280 million over three seasons.

The debate over the Spotify deal was the latest among numerous disagreements between Reverter and Barcelona president Joan Laporta.

The 49-year-old has played a key role in the club’s attempts at reducing the enormous debts of €1.35 billion. Laporta said last week the club’s wage bill has been reduced by €159 million since his arrival as president last year.
