Barcelona is preparing for the presidential elections, and there is more than one candidate to succeed Bartomeu, led by former Spanish club president Juan Laporta, who is preparing a surprise for the fans.
The pace of events within the Spanish club Barcelona is accelerating in the current period at the administrative level significantly,
since the resignation of Josep Maria Bartomeu from the presidency of the club,
before the referendum was held to withdraw confidence from him,
and the appointment of a temporary council to manage the club’s affairs for a period of 3 months headed by Carles Tosquets.
There are a number of names preparing to run for the club’s presidency in the coming period, headed by Juan Laporta,
the former club president from 2003 to 2010, who lost the last elections to Josep Maria Bartomeu.
Bartomeu’s resignation came after strong public pressure from the club’s members,
in light of the remarkable decline in the level of the first football team in the Catalan club,
and its exit from last season empty-handed after losing the Spanish League title,
and the humiliating exit from the Champions League with a 8-2 loss in front of Bayern German Munich.
Before Bartomeu’s departure from the reins of power in Barcelona, he signed Dutchman Ronald Koeman as the new coach of the team,
succeeding Quique Setien, who left the club after the Lisbon scandal against Bayern Munich.
Despite the arrival of Coman, a graduate of the school of legend Johan Cruyff,
the results of the team so far in the Spanish League championship do not bode well in light of the team’s loss so far to 10 points in only 6 games,
where it won twice, drew twice and lost twice as well, and the team ranks late In the Spanish League table, 8 points ahead of their traditional rivals Real Madrid,
who are second in the table with 16 points, just one point behind leaders Real Sociedad.
And many European press reports suggest that Koeman may leave Barcelona’s training if results continue to decline.
The famous Spanish television program “El Chiringuito” exploded a big surprise by revealing that German coach Juergen Klopp,
the coach of Liverpool’s English team would surprise Juan Laporta in the upcoming Barcelona elections.
The program indicated that Juan Laporta is currently trying to convince the coach,
who in recent years has placed himself at the top of the training pyramid in the world, to train the Barcelona team in the coming period.
Juan Laporta is currently preparing an integrated electoral program to present to Barcelona’s members in the coming period,
but he may not be successful in the move to bring Jurgen Klopp.
The German coach has a contract with Liverpool that expires in June 2024,
but he had raised ambiguity about his future after he said in a statement last week that he was wrong not to leave Liverpool last summer.
