Barcelona secretary Toni Freixa says Tito Vilanova’s camp is a happy one, in response to questions regarding the troubles of Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo in the Spanish capital.
Speaking during an announcement regarding the club’s finances, Freixa was asked whether Lionel Messi is treated better than Ronaldo, which he answered by stating that the Argentine star ‘deserves everything,’ while moving to insist a new contract was not yet in the offing for the player.
The Barca spokesman told those in attendance that ‘here at the club we are all very happy’, in contrast to Ronaldo’s recent media outburst.
The accounts revealed at the press conference showed revenue of €470 million and expenses of €427.29m, leaving the club an estimed profit of around €35.9m.
The previous year ended with a record profit of €48.8m. All of the figures given by Freixa have been approved by Barca’s board, but await ratification by the relevant authorities.
