FC Barcelona Without having announced his candidacy, he is considered the favorite
The electoral race in the Bara It now resembles a first non-timed section, time to make known names and ideas, with the right tempo so as not to burn all the ships at the beginning but not to lose step or visibility. As se est moviendo Vctor Font, for example, whose project has been in the making for five years, ready to hatch. Others of those who have announced their intention to appear, case of Xavier Vilajoana O Toni Freixa, they are in the kitchen, cooking phase. But all of them, as well as the partner, are waiting for the earthquake to break when Joan Laporta say it this presidency is going to be mine.
Because the former Barça president is tense with those who will be his rivals when he decides to appear. Laporta You are building your team, calling people you trust here and there, looking for business partners. Junta, knowing that an important part of Barcelona with suffrage wants him. It is not an easy task given the critical financial situation of the club, which will force the incoming Board to take responsibility for the accounts. But Joan it was always the march.
His strength is concentrated in the pro-independence sector and in the young partner, much more inclined to his ways than the veteran, conservative by nature, largely responsible for his last defeat at the polls, July 2015. Laporta was presented as the winner but it was surpassed by Bartomeu, his triplet and his trident (the MSN). “We must make the revolution again,” he cried Laporta in campaign, but despite being the loser with the most support in history (more than 15,000 votes), he remained at 11,000 from Barto, which personified the continuity endorsed by the three titles.
Laporta is sliding whisper that has a winning card, a bomb one of those that give you the necessary boost to be the most voted in an election, despite the fact that when the cataract of names is held in January, it is mid-season and also taking into account how the Barça coffers are. It should be noted the excellent relationship of Laporta with Jordi Cruyff and that in 2015 Abidal was its sports director, just as Alexanco it was always on his team. In any case, it is worth remembering the excellent relationship of Laporta with Jorge Mendes (Mrquez, Lent, Deco… almost Mourinho) Y Mino Raiola (they dressed Ibrahimovic of azulgrana in 2010 and in 2015 the trick of ‘Jan’ was Pogba), two of the most reputable and influential players in the market.
Without the factor Johan Cruyff, who always supported him, it does not seem that Laporta cares that Xavi is ascribed only to Font (with whom you have been working on the candidacy for years S al futur). Time may run against him, although in 2015 he also took a long time to officially run. Its four pillars were cruyffismo, catalanismo, La Masia and Unicef. The independence movement will return to settle in the Camp Nou if Laporta wins, as it already happened during the seven years in which he held the presidential seat. It remains to be seen what his team is, after the successful elections in 2003, when he was the leader of a few enthusiasts who began the rebuilding of the Only, among those who were Sandro Rosell (was his successor), Ferran Soriano (CEO of City) O Marc Ingla (CEO of Little).
Without having spoken publicly yet, Laporta is considered in different sectors of the Barça environment as the great favorite (even Benedito I recognized him publicly in BRAND Radio). Even your potential rivals know what you can drag. Without a project already matured like Font, so far the candidate that has positioned itself the fastest, out of the club for a long time, not as Vilajoana, with experience in more elections, such as Toni Freixa or the tireless Agust Benedito. They have also confirmed their intention to attend Jordi Farr (promoter of the motion to hasten the end of Bartomeu) and the unknown Blue Fernndez Al. All of them will need more than 2,000 signatures to go from pre to candidates.
