Toni Nadal has spoken about Víctor Font’s offer to become president of Barcelona, explaining that “I don’t get involved in politics – I get involved in helping a sporting institution.”
Nadal was said to be Font’s latest signing on Friday as the intense race to become the next president of the Catalan club has begun.
Nadal feels amazing with the project presented by Font and has joked that he’ll avoid from talking about football with his nephew Rafa Nadal, who’s a Real Madrid supporter and a tennis legend.
Nadal believes “the first thing is to try to win. We know that the club’s situation is really complicated, and that’s why change is necessary."
“[Font] spoke to me about a series of issues and one of them is to achieve a great commitment from all the people involved in the club. We want all the players – from the first team to the youngsters – to know what it is to wear the Barça shirt.”
“He is a very correct guy, very prepared and a good person who will be good for Barça,” Nadal said about Font. “I don’t get involved in politics,” he said. “I get involved in helping a sporting institution.”
Born in Mallorca, Nadal is the brother of former Barcelona player Miguel Ángel Nadal and coached Rafa from 1990 until 2017.
