Joan Laporta confirmed as Barcelona’s new president after successful election

Joan Laporta has been confirmed as Barcelona’s new president after storming to an election victory.

The membership’s members voted on Sunday to elect the brand new president, and Laporta was the overwhelming favorite to see off the challenges of Victor Font and Toni Freixa.

The early exit ballot claimed Laporta had secured 58 per cent of the vote, and that prediction proved to be broadly appropriate.

It is going to be Laporta’s second spell as membership president after a time period that started in 2003 and noticed him appoint Pep Guardiola as coach.

Barcelona can now flip their attentions to on-field occasions.

The staff will journey to the French capital to face Paris Saint-Germain within the Champions League on Wednesday.

Barca path 4-1 from the primary leg, and Laporta has stated that he’ll journey with the squad.
