Soriano says current job compatible with presidency

Asked about his role in the upcoming presidential elections, former Barcelona economic vice-president Ferran Soriano didn't speak out on the issue at an economic conference in Barcelona, although he didn't exclude the possibility of taking part suggesting that he could combine his current job with that of Barcelona president:

"It's not yet the moment to take a position. What I can say is that being the chairman of Spanair is a job that can be combined with other tasks. I'm a non-executive chairman and we have a chief executive with 25 years of experience in the aviation sector.

Spanair is currently living revolutionary times and I'm totally dedicated to the company. I have a long-term commitment with Spanair. But in theory and in practice I can take up other jobs. The president of Barça has traditionally always done something else so that should not be a point of discussion."
