Josep Maria Bartomeu's morning task of checking his emails and written correspondence must be quite the ordeal, with bad news followed by even worse news, and in the midst of a huge motion of no-confidence against him, Barcelona's senior squad have rejected his latest salary cut proposals.

The Barcelona president is in the unenviable position of incredible unpopularity amongst both fans and players, although one could argue much of that was his own doing.

With Lionel Messi have already rallied against the president in the summer, Bartomeu's credibility has taken an even bigger blow with senior players refusing his latest plans to save the club some money.

It was the return of the dreaded Burofax, as Los Cules' players sent a direct negative response to the office of the president as RAC 1 reported on Friday morning.
