Board secretary Cubells to become vice-president

Catalan sports paper El Mundo Deportivo claims that it's almost certain that Barcelona board member Josep Cubells will become one of the club's vice-presidents if current first vice-president Alfons Godall is chosen as president of FC Barcelona next year.

The 45-year old Catalan lawyer, who is currently the secretary of the board and the director responsible for Barcelona's basketball team, would become Barcelona's institutional vice-president, a post occupied by Albert PerrĂ­n since last month (read more here).

Josep Cubells, who is also the chairman of the club's disciplinary commission, is one of the five directors left from the board that came to power in June 2003 when Joan Laporta was elected president of the club (read more here).
