In the absence of a week to officially conclude the season (on June 27, against Eibar), controversy has broken out in the women’s club. Despite the glory of the triplet, tensions within the squad have surfaced after it transpired that the captains would have requested the relief of Lluís Cortés. The coach played down the complaints of his players.
“It is normal that in a team with such competitive demands and so much emotional charge conflicts and moments of tension appear, “declared the coach after training this Saturday when Cortés and the players met again after the Sports journal publish the existence of that letter of complaint sent to the sports management, and of which the directive had evidence against the coach.
Cortés advocated finding solutions “internally”, but said that he had proposed some: “I’ve been saying for a long time that you have to make changes especially when you win, to keep winning, “said the coach from Lleida, who felt calm for” knowing that the club trusts us in this project “, and that he would maintain that mental strength to” change things “with the aim that Barça would repeat a year of excellence like the current one, in which it has won the League, the Cup and the Champions League. “We have to continue being a family,” he argued.
Losada was not happy
Vicky Losada, One of the captains and as such a signatory of the document, did not deny the existence of that letter that expressed discomfort over the treatment of the technician, which she already verbalized individually when announced a few weeks ago that he was leaving Barça.

He agreed with Cortés that the human group “was very good”, that they had lived a year “complicated” by the covid-19 and that it had finally emerged “emotional tension” accumulated over a season. “The team has always respected the hierarchies of the club”, he said, respecting in advance the determination that the board will make, in the same way that he has respected the coach’s decisions. “We want to end up winning (the team will face Real Sociedad in the League this Sunday and then they will face Athletic, Sporting de Huelva and Eibar in eight days) and say goodbye to a year that has been very beautiful for everyone.”
