Former player Belletti gives support to Rosell

Catalan sports player Sport claims that former Barcelona player Juliano Belletti supports the candidacy of Sandro Rosell ahead of the presidential elections in June. Belletti joined Barcelona in the summer of 2004 when Rosell was the club's sports vice-president. In 2007, he left for English Premier League club Chelsea.

Earlier this month, the 33-year old Brazilian right back defender said in an interview with Brazilian sports site UOL Esporte that he hopes to get a position at the club after he retires as an active player:

"Barcelona is the place where I want to live after having finished my career. Whenever I have time off, I'm going there. I have a house there, some businesses, friendships with the players, with the president. My wife also has friends there. I have the idea of becoming a sort of ambassador of Barcelona, working for the club, there or elsewhere. But a lot depends on what they offer you."
