Catalan sports paper Sport claims that Catalan businessman Silvio Elías [picture] will be part of the board team of the candidacy of Barcelona presidential candidate Sandro Rosell ahead of the elections later this year.
If Rosell would be elected as president, Elías would become part of the sports area, that will most probably be led by former Barcelona director Josep Maria Bartomeu, who left the club together with Rosell in June 2005, as sports vice-president (read more here).
Silvio Elías, whose family sold their part in Catalan supermarket company Caprabo a few years ago, is currently the chief executive of Catalan ecological supermarket company Veritas. Elías is reportedly also linked with Duet Sports, a company that manages sports facilities.
