Joan Laporta He was interviewed last Friday on GOL’s YouTube channel, where he reviewed the current affairs of FC Barcelona, which has spent one of its most turbulent moments at the institutional level in a long time. What until now was an open secret is getting closer to reality and even Laporta himself has admitted that he is very close to officially presenting his candidacy for the Barça club presidency.
“Every time I am more excited, each time I gather people who motivate me more. I have it quite advanced“he confirmed in reference to his candidacy.” I have it in mind. You have to think carefully about how to reverse the financial situation of the club. I would like to make a proposal to do it, “he added.
The former president expressed concern about how the current board is handling the team’s finances, calling it “the trillion club“A trillion of income, a trillion of expenses and a trillion of debts. Unfortunately, just as it looks, trillion revenue may not be reached“He regretted.” It is worrying and we have to carry out a sports project that hopes and improves what is happening now and improves the institutional image of Barça. “
As for the deadlines, Laporta plans to decide his candidacy “at the end of this year or at the beginning of next year” and rules out a preview of the elections despite the crisis Barcelona is going through. “They must be in June 2021. I do not foresee an advance. Those who are now need to endure because the situation is very complicated and if they left it now, you would see the whole situation that has caused this indebtedness and this precarious situation. “
Today, the safest candidate for the elections is that of Victor Font, and it is also foreseen that of some manager who supposes a continuist alternative. At first, everything pointed to Emili Rousaud being the candidate, but after all his controversy with Bartomeu, he has lost a lot of strength.
Laporta would recover the mandate eleven years after leaving the management of the Catalan team, where he won four Leagues and two Champions, with a sextet included, and 2 Leagues and a Euroleague in basketball, among other trophies.
