Josep Maria Bartomeu
Bartomeu has been president since Sandro Rosell resigned in 2014

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has resigned following increasing fan pressure and a public fall-out with Lionel Messi.

He fell out with forward Messi after the Argentina striker handed in a transfer request in August.

His resignation comes three days after Barca’s 3-1 home defeat to Real Madrid.

Bartomeu is due to step down in March, having served the maximum two terms as club president.

Messi said he felt deceived by Bartomeu following his failed summer move.

The forward agreed to stay at the club but resentment against Bartomeu has been growing in the past year due to worsening finances and the team’s decline on the pitch, which saw them lift no major silverware last season.

Under his leadership the Spanish giants have won four La Liga titles and the Champions League in 2015.
