Legendary goalkeeper Victor Valdes is in the books along with Rafael Yuste who is in a leading position. Previously the sporting director of Valencia, Mateu Alemany also looks to surely be a part of Joan Laporta’s team of management if he is to become the Barcelona president.

A huge part of Laporta’s management team will also be played by the likes of Sergi Barjuan, Albert Benaiges, Pichi Alonso, Xavi Llorens, and Jose Ramon Alexanko. Former Barcelona legend and centre-back Carles Puyol also looks to be in the list of names that Laporta will have as his team of management.

The Spaniard seems to have the upper hand in the election as the likes of Samuel Eto’o, Deco, and Rafael Marquez seem to provide all their support to Laporta. According to reports, they have claimed the Spaniard to be the “future president” of Barcelona.

Joan also stated that they are not looking to involve Xavi Hernandez and Andres Iniesta as of now. Reports state that Laporta does not want to make them feel used. Especially with Xavi potentially becoming the club’s future coach. The Spaniard claims to have a good relationship with the former legendary Barca midfielders and he wants it to stay that way as of now without any dents.

Victor Font has also recently called out Joan Laporta and his management for the team if he is to become the president. Font stated that it’s a ‘fact’ that Laporta does not have any solid plan for the team, for when he potentially becomes the president. The two Spaniards will be going head to head in March as one of them will come out on top to become the next president of Barcelona. Only the arrival of the elections in March will hand us the results.
