Barcelona presidential candidateJordi Farre admits Lionel Messi's recent interview has helped increase momentum for a vote of no confidence against the club's current board.

In an exclusive chat with Goal, Messi revealed he would remain at Camp Nou this season but hit out at Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu for breaking his word about letting him leave at the end of last season.

Those comments have only heaped more pressure onBartomeu, with Farrepushing for a vote of no confidence within the club which would allow for apresidential election to be held by the end of this year.

With Barcelona also currently struggling financially, Farre is adamant change is needed soon and admits Messi's recent comments havehelped hasten his cause.

"Messi said there is no project and the board lied to him, all 'socios' should sign the motion of censure," Farre told Goal.

"The signature collection got hurried after Messi's quotes toGoal, the rhythmgot doubled after it, maybe he should have used another strategy but the important thing is he is staying and I still think it is possible to convince him to sign another renewal.

"The financial situation at Barcelona is very dangerous because there's a €800 milliondebt and a lot payment obligations.Griezmann has been paid thanks to a private fund and FCB won't begin to give back the money until 2021, for example.

"The new Camp Nou project must be stopped in a context of financial crisisand still nobody knows when fans are allowed to be back at the stadium anyway.

"We hope to have all signatures for the motion of censure bySeptember 17.If we do, there will be a referendum in 30 days and if the result is against Bartomeu, the election should take part around December 5, 2020."

Manchester City were the club most strongly linked with a move for Messi but Farre declared he's not worried about the prospect of competing with the club financially moving forward.
