Joan Laporta elected as Barcelona’s new president

Joan Laporta, who led the club from the Catalan capital from 2003 to 2010, has been elected the new president of football Barcelona. The post of the first person of “Barça” was vacated after Josep Bartomeu resigned in October last year.

As Vesti.Ru already reported, Bartomeu, who won the elections against Laporta in 2015, was criticized for almost his entire term about the activities of the leadership. And in March this year, the ex-head of Barcelona was arrested on suspicion of violating the laws of Spain.

Laporta won the election for the new president of the club, gaining 54.28% of the vote. He was ahead of Victor Font (29.29%) and Tony Freixa (8.58%). During the period that the 58-year-old functionary led Barça, the team has won a total of 12 trophies. In 2009, the Catalans took six trophies in a season.
