    Found this post on another forum as a further explanation of why Monje resigned

    Monje, who is known for stating Neymar's cost was ''only 19,3 million Euros'', had to step down due to legal trouble surrounding her private company, Essentium/Assignia, which hasn't been paying their workers' wages for several months. The company has a financial hole that's €125m deep, and the workers' protests were starting to make Barça look pretty bad. Add the accusations of possible bribes to public officials and the whole picture turns even darker.

    In the end, it looks like Bartomeu gave Monje an ultimatum: either you make this go away, or we'll have to terminate our relationship. And she had to step down.

    While this position is vacant, Monje's duties will be taken over by Bartomeu himself.

    Haha true!

    Second party damaging Barça isn't allowed but he himself dragging Barça through the dirt is fine. Nevertheless it's good to see shady people leave the club, although there's plenty left and seeing the top of such an institution managed by people with clean hands seems like a utopia.
    If that's the real reason for her stepping down it's pretty ironic because Bartomeu has done tons of things that damaged Barça's reputation more.
