Barcelona restructuring in the season 2021/22

In 2021, there were many interesting events in the football world. The Euro has passed, the final part of the League of Nations and all club tournaments took place without any problems. However, the restructuring of Barcelona stood apart, because few people believed that Lionel Messi moved to PSG. You can follow football today results on the verified statistical portal. The website also has lineups and the latest news.

Barcelona’s failures started a long time ago, under President Josep Bartomeu. Costly signings that didn’t justify themselves, contracts for all players with huge salaries, large investments in obscure projects — all this led to financial disaster and debts.


New club’s President Joan Laporta was enthusiastic, but he still failed to keep Lionel Messi in the team. The following players left too:

  • Emerson Royal;
  • Junior Firpo;
  • Carles Alena.

These were not the most important players, but that is it when it comes to full-fledged transfers. Antoine Griezmann, Francisco Trinkau, Miralem Pjanic and Filipe Coutinho were let go on loan for almost nothing.

Despite the advance trust shown by Joan Laporta, the head coach Ronald Koeman was fired and Xavi was signed in his place. Of course, the Spaniard didn’t become a “superman” and didn’t immediately take Barcelona to its past heights. However, the specialist managed to regain discipline in the club; plus, against the background of problems with the lineup, the academy provided significant assistance. La Masia has long been forgotten, because since the time of Pep Guardiola, few people have paid attention to new talents. All today results of the renewed Barcelona roster at different football tournaments can be viewed on the verified statistical portal. There is also information about past seasons and news about your favourite teams.

How Barcelona coped with Lionel Messi’s departure

The news of Lionel Messi’s departure was received extremely negatively by Barcelona fans. The Argentinian spent 21 years in the club and went from a young player to the winner of six Golden Balls, plus he also received many other awards and titles. La Liga today results of the Catalan team without Messi can be found on the informative statistical platform at any time and via various gadgets.

Barcelona started the Spanish championship extremely poorly, but this was not the worst achievement. For the first time in 17 years, the team didn’t make it to the Champions League 2021/22 playoffs. It could even leave the group, and the statistics for 6 matches was depressing: 2 goals scored and 9 ones missed. Such Barcelona has not been seen for a long time. In the restructured club, only a few star players remained, and the rest were invited from the youth team. It is worth watching the team’s today’s results in La Liga and other tournaments closely, because under Xavi’s leadership, its performance should definitely improve.
