Weekly Round-up (22): Cruyff. Catalonia. Unicef.

Every week an overview of the posts from this blog, written by Xaviniesta, is published on Barcelona news site totalBarca.

Laporta claims he has consistently defended the current model which he said is built on certain principles, in particular: ‘more than a club’ in the social area, the youth academy, and Cruyff in the sports area.

He also said, reportedly, that certain groups that were originally part of the project left because of their immaturity and inability to deal with pressure, claiming that those who remained at the club are the ones that stayed true to the project and can best ensure its continuity.
