Several Catalan papers report today that a management book written by former Barcelona economic vice-president Ferran Soriano has been launched with great success in Japan.
"Goruwa gusen no sumbutsu dewanai", a translation of his book "La pilota no entra per atzar" (The ball doesn't go in by chance) that was published in April of this year, was released last week in Japan and is at this moment the sixth most sold non-fiction book in the Asian country.
The sports management book, that is also for sale in Mexico, Czechia, South Corea and Brazil, tells the experience of Soriano as vice-president of Barcelona and explains the model that was introduced in the club since Joan Laporta became president in 2003.
Soriano, who is currently the chairman of Spanish airline Spanair and is still thinking about his involvement in next year's elections for president of Barcelona (read more here), was last weekend in Japan and gave fifteen interviews to local papers and magazines. On Friday, a one-page publicity announcement will be published in Japan's main newspapers.
