Business partner Laporta in candidacy Godall

Barcelona news site Pelikano claims that Catalan lawyer Xavier Puig (picture, in the centre) will be part of the board team of current Barcelona first vice-president and presidential candidate Alfons Godall. Puig would become a vice-president in the next Barcelona board if Godall is elected as president.

Xavier Puig is a close business partner of Barcelona president Joan Laporta (picture, on the left). Puig is an associated partner in the Laporta & Arbós law firm, that was founded by the current Barcelona president, and is also chief executive of financial services company Financat, that is presided by Laporta.
