"I felt I'd been fighting an uphill battle for some time. I had different ideas about things to other board members but it wasn't important. I realised that I was the only one who thought in a certain way. The football committee which comprised Bartomeu, Bordas, Elias and Vilajoana were not in agreement with me or with Pep Segura in his role as General Manager. I was the only one who defended him and I felt alone," Mestre said.
