Barcelona president Joan Laporta gave in August an interview to Catalan sports paper Sport and talked about which board member could succeed him in next year's presidential elections.
When will the current board definitely start the debate about the continuity candidate?
I think that we will have to start dealing with this issue from January of next year. It wouldn't be good to start earlier and to start a kind of election campaign ten months before the elections.
This board deserves that one of its members would be the next president of Barça? There's talk about Sala i Martín and Jaume Ferrer...
It has been proven that this model of governing the club has been good at every level and that is why it deserves to be continued. All the board members have shown a great workrate and consistency. And most of all they have been able to resist in very difficult times.
