The La Liga champions on Monday announced that Barcelona will bring legal action against a former vice-president who has made accusations of management corruption. Last week Barcelona furiously denied accusations from Emili Rousaud, who was one of six directors to resign on Thursday, that someone at the club had “put their hands in the till. The Board of Directors categorically denies any action that could be described as corruption and have agreed to bring the corresponding criminal action accordingly. “FC Barcelona cannot tolerate allegations that seriously damage the institution’s image. The criminal action to be taken is in defence of the honour of the club and its employees. The existence of an ongoing audit must put an end to this matter”, Barca said in a statement.
