Role Masfurroll in Rosell candidacy unclear

Catalan sports paper El Mundo Deportivo claims that Gabriel Masfurroll will support Barcelona presidential candidate Sandro Rosell during the coming elections (read more here).

The former Barcelona vice-president is said to get possibly involved in the club's foundation if Rosell would be elected president. Spanish television channel Intereconomía nevertheless claims that Masfurroll certainly won't become the president of the foundation.

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.
