No confidence vote: Benedito says he has over 7,000 signatures

Is he going to make it by the deadline?

Agusti Benedito has said he has 7,278 signatures for his vote of no confidence and is “convinced” he will be able to achieve the 16,570 needed.

"We’re above our expectations and we’re convinced we’re going to achieve it," he said via Sport.

However, there is still disagreement over when the deadline for signatures is. Benedito says October 2, Barcelona say September 27.

Benedito also seems far more confident than he did directly after the Juventus game, but if the deadline is the September 27, that leaves him with only one more home game, against Eibar next Tuesday.

“We are totally convinced that Saturdays are not working days. Our legal team and third party legal teams have recognised as much.

"Hopefully the board present their resignation before Nov. 1. I think they are worried, they don’t have any direction, you can tell with Bartomeu.

“That’s why they’ve created so many obstacles."

It seems that Benedito has almost half the votes he needs with a little under two weeks left (if we accept the deadline in September 27).

Will he get enough though?
