FC Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu was the main focus of attention at Martin Braithwaite's presentation on Thursday. The Barca chief was asked many questions about Barcagate - the social media scandal affecting the club.

Bartomeu evaded them, saying that "the club is making an analysis and if there is news, we'll call you (the media) up."

The president said he was delighted with Braithwaite's arrival. "We hope that he helps us in La Liga which we want to win. That's the hope of the fans too. He's talented, strong and will help us. I'm very happy."

On Leganes, who are now without a goalscoring forward, he added: "We did what the law allows but these clauses should be changed, it's not fair that Leganes can't reinforce. In the future there should be some change."

Asked if Braithwaite could leave in the summer, Bartomeu said: "He's signed for four and a half years, he's here to help in La Liga and in the future, that is undoubtable."
