We’ll wait to hear the official word from the club, but things are happening quickly within Barcelona. The decision that was made today doesn’t seem to have been handled with the greatest form of communication.

The latest release we have from the club themselves is a statement on the decision to play the game without fans. We have yet to hear Vilarrubí’s role in the decision and why he reportedly stepped down.
