Barcelona – Barcelona president Sandro Rosell says he has resigned in the aftermath of a Spanish court’s decision to investigate last year’s signing of Brazil forward, Neymar.

“The success the club has had also comes along with difficult moments for me and my family,” Rosell told a news conference yesterday after a board meeting held by the Spanish champions.

“There have been threats and accusations which make you consider your position, including the claim of misappropriation of funds and the court case. I’ve always stated that we acted correctly with the Neymar transfer,” he said.
