Godall waiting for poll to announce candidacy

Catalan sports paper El Mundo Deportivo claims that Barcelona vice-president Alfons Godall will announce before the end of the month of January during a press conference that he will take part in the elections for president of FC Barcelona later this year.

Sources close to the vice-president would have told the paper that Godall is waiting for the results of a poll that has been carried out to make his candidacy public. If Godall in the end would decide not to run, Barcelona treasurer Xavier Sala i Martín would be ready to take his place.

Madrid sports paper As claims that Barcelona president Joan Laporta prefers Sala i Martín over Godall, but that a candidacy lead by the first would most probably mean that bank guarantees should be put down because Sala i Martín only joined the board of directors last year.
