In football, it is normal for clubs to have their difficult times. This is because life itself is not straight. As human beings, we are bound to take wrong decisions at various times. But, the ability to overturn difficulties and produce excellence is what separates the big clubs from the small ones.
Ahead of this season, the Catalans faced a lot of challenges. In fact, the club had a very terrible preseason. First, they lost their superstar, Neymar Junior, to Paris Saint Germain in a very complicated deal. The Brazillian was signed by the French club in a world record deal worth €222million.
That deal was followed by a lot of crisis in the club. While some people blamed the player for disloyalty, others slammed the board, claiming that they did not do enough to preserve him.
As if that was not enough, the Blaugrana faced another disappointment which made things even worse. This time, they were humiliated by their arch-rivals, Real Madrid in the Supercopa de Espana. The Capital club defeated the Catalans with an aggregate score of 5-1 to lift the trophy and added more salt to their wounds.
These developments put the club in a total mess and brought a lot of angry reactions from the fans. However, fast-forward few months into the season and the atmosphere is totally different. The Catalans have proved their critics wrong and gained the heart of their fans. They have made it to the final of the Copa Del Rey and are on course to reclaim the La Liga title from their arch-rivals.
