Asked about the elections for president of FC Barcelona that will be held on 13 June, Barcelona president Joan Laporta has suggested in an interview with Spanish radio station Cadena Cope that a joint candidacy including Barcelona vice-presidents Alfons Godall and Jaume Ferrer and former vice-president Ferran Soriano is still an option:
"Since we made the decision on the date of the elections, the entourage of the club is very focused on the league and the Champions League and knows that once the season has finished there will be enough time to express or listen to the arguments, to know more about the programs and the projects of the candidates.
So I think the whole issue has for now been put aside a little and that the supporters are now in the first place interested in football. Will I try to set up a candidacy that includes Godall, Ferrer and even Soriano? You know, I like to talk with you because you always give me good ideas."
