Asked about the upcoming elections, Barcelona president Joan Laporta has told journalists that he still thinks Barcelona vice-presidents Alfons Godall and Jaume Ferrer should form one candidacy:
"I hope the next president will be someone who continues with this model that makes us live the best moment in history. Jaume Ferrer has said he will run and Alfons Godall might also take part, I don't know.
In my opinion the two defend the same model and so it would be better that they join forces, which is still an option. The idea of both is to improve the current project, so I think it's possible to have one single candidacy that defends the current successful model. My role in the whole process will be to keep on governing the club and to organize exemplary elections."
Godall: "The decision has been made"
Board still trying for united candidacy
Perrin: "Nobody is touched by the magic stick"
