In recent days, Anoan Laporta reveals some details of his crash plan as a presidential candidate in FC Barcelona next 24 January. The former Barça president presented his project and offered several interviews in which he increased his argument. The last one was on the microphones of “El Partidazo” from Cadena COPE.
Of course One of the main topics of the interview was Leo Messi, whose future at the club is very unclear. “That Leo Messi continues is not just a matter of money, because Leo is not moving for money,” said the candidate, recalling that “he loves Barca and has shown that by choosing the club over superior economic offers. I am convinced that “I can make him happy.”
Ano Laporta is clear that Leo Messi is injured because the sports project has been stalled for a long time, something that did not allow him to win the Champions League. “He is injured because he was deceived and that reduces the man who has spent years giving his all for Barça. He needs a proposal that will allow him to win again. He could not stand that other teams lifted the Champions League when he wanted to win it. he said.
In the same sense, Anoan Laporta does not understand that having Leo Messi in the team has not won the Champions League anymore. “With the best player in the world in the team, we should have won more Champions League. Unfortunately, other teams have won. We are here to bring back that idyll we had with the Champions League and it was spoiled in recent seasons,” he said. he.
“Messi is injured because he was deceived. He needs a proposal that will allow him to win the Champions League again.”
The candidate for the FC Barcelona elections admitted that he has a great relationship with Leo Messi and that they both maintain contact. “I have known him since he was 16 and I saw him mature. He is a great person, there is mutual respect and appreciation and I have a habit of calling him to congratulate him when he has good news or to encourage him when there is less good news,” he said. .
Anoan Laporta explained that “the last time I talked to Leo was in October, when there was a burofax and everything that happened” and that the Argentine “knows that I want to wait until there is a new president and he can make a serious proposal. We need to be inside to know the real situation of the club and see if we can make an imaginative proposal that can compete with those who they already exist.
In this sense, The former president assured that he has full confidence in Leo Messi and that any offer he makes will be to keep his word. “If I make him an offer, Leo will believe it, because he always tells me that I did what I told him. Another thing is that he chose my proposal than the ones he already has,” he said.
Again, Anoan Laporta returned to comment on Neymar’s words. “Let people be calm, because it is normal for two teammates who are friends to want to get back together. Neymar respected the hierarchy and brought something to the locker room and Messi liked it. And he needs it, a live locker room. The players need it again. “to motivate them to feel strong as a team,” he said.
On the sidelines of Messi
Anoan Laporta was also against the creation of the European Super League, something he said would be detrimental to the world of football. “If you only think about money, you will load the business and the essence of football. I think there are alternatives like the Club World Cup every two years,” he said.
Also, He also assured that he does not like VAR or how it is implemented. “As a footballer, I do not like VAR. If it favors Madrid? You just have to see that every last game in the last league had questionable performances … and they will explain to me how they throw the lines,” he commented on the end of the last league. .
“Bartomeu left a very bad legacy”
Anoan Laporta also questioned the alleged alliance between Victor Font and Xavi Hernandez. “I would like to know what Xavi has to do with Victor Font, because it is not clear. I have a friendship with him, but we did not discuss this issue. When I know he is free, I will have no problem talking to Xavi,” the candidate explained. .
Anoan Laporta does not have a very good opinion of the management of Josep Maria Bartomeu. “Bartomeu left a very bad legacy and the club at an unsustainable level of indebtedness and spending. Covid influenced him, but this has already come from the previous administration. I am not the one to judge if he is the worst president in the history of the club, I am not here. “to give those rewards,” he said.
