WOW!!! There’s a chilling reason why Barcelona players boycotted the FIFA awards
Barcelona players were notable absentees at Monday’s FIFA Best award that held in Zurich.
Four Barcelona players were scheduled to make the trip to Switzerland.
But with just hours to the award, while other players were sharing pictures of their journey, Barcelona released a statement.
According to the club, the players were not expected at the event and would remain in Barcelona to prepare for their Copa del Rey game against Athletic Club on Sunday.
With Barcelona trailing 2-1 from the first away leg, few saw their reason as good enough and understandable.
However, Spanish media MARCA have now revealed the real reason behind their decision to stay back in Barcelona.
First of all, it turns out the decision was made by the players and the club had nothing to do with it but only supported them.
And the reason why the players refused to travel was in protest to the club’s bosses for the lack of support in their first leg cup game in Bilbao.
No Barcelona directors to attended the first leg of their Copa del Rey clash against Athletic Bilbao last week which is now generating now disappointing headlines in Spain.
