Barcelona several years ago, perhaps too many, that it went from being more than a club to become a circus. And not happy with it, the dwarves grow more and more. As if the economic and institutional crisis that the Blaugrana is going through were not enough, this week the racial crisis has been added, as a result of a video in which, it seems, Dembélé and Antoine Griezmann make fun of some Japanese workers. The culés can not let it happen and they have to take action.
There are two reasons to take action. The first is more important, far beyond political correctness, image and values, it is economic. Barcelona has numerous and very large agreements with Japanese sponsors who have already made their annoyance public. Barcelona is a Konami team (Pro Evolution Soccer) sponsored by Rakuten, almighty Japanese company. In the current context of the sporting economic crisis, especially at the Camp Nou club, they cannot afford to lose big advertisers. Taking action, an exemplary penalty, or any other action would boost your relationship and close deals. Letting it pass could be the checkmate to the Blaugrana coffers.
The second reason, obviously, is the values and image of the club. Soccer is much more than a sport and, among many other characteristics, it is an example. Despite the fact that the mockery has been innocent, it has existed, and problems like these must be addressed and cannot be allowed. If you want to represent els values You have to show it in your day-to-day life and to the letter, even in events that you consider “silly”.
