"The media ruled us out too hastily, affirming that this only it was a matter of two, even with polls" said Freixa.
it seems that the focus of news about Barcelona Presidential positions is only on Joan Laporta and Victor Font. This has got Tony Freixa to believe that the media has eliminated the possibility of other candidates to win the election.
Laporta and Font have been frontrunners for the position. The election is likely to be held on 24 January.
The current interim president of Blaugrana is Carlos Tusquets after Joseph Bartomeu resigned.
Freixa said: “We are grateful and we feel very positive because there are still many members who want an authentic club free of external interests.
“There is no doubt that we are the candidacy of the people of Barça and we have achieved it without placing a single advertisement or entering the echo of the media that, for the most part, had mistakenly discarded us. The media ruled us out too hastily, affirming that this only it was a matter of two, even with polls.”
He was part of the board of directors of FC Barcelona during the presidencies of Joan Laporta, Sandro Rosell, and Josep Maria Bartomeu. He also announced his intentions to run Barcelona in 2015. However, He has said that he will be a break from former presidents.
