Masfurroll cautious about election involvement

Asked about the rumours saying that he will be part of the candidacy of Sandro Rosell (read more here), former Barcelona vice-president Gabriel Masfurroll has said in an interview with Catalan radio station Catalunya Ràdio that it is too early to comment on the upcoming presidential elections:

"I think that's all too premature at this moment and I don't think it's good for Barça that there's talking about the elections six or more months before they take place. Let the team play, let's leave them alone and when the electoral period starts the people that want to take part can then present themselves, with the team they want."

Gabriel Masfurroll is the chairman and managing director of USP Hospitals, a network of private hospitals in Spain, southern Europe and Morocco. He is a former Barcelona board member under Josep Lluís Núñez and was a presidential candidate in 2000. He was vice-president under Joan Gaspart until he resigned in December 2002.
