From Convincing Lionel Messi to Fighting Financial Crisis: Challenges Barcelona New President Joan Laporta Will Have to Tackle
Joan Laporta has returned to head the football club Barcelona after winning the presidential election on Sunday. Laporta has been one of the most successful presidents in Barcelona’s history as during his earlier tenure the Blaugrana won the sextuple in 2009/10 with Pep Guardiola as the manager. Laporta made some serious business during that time as bought some of the biggest players in world football – Ronaldinho, Deco, Thierry Henry and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but the situation will not be the same this time for Laporta.
Barcelona were in decent financial condition at that time but now they are going through some serious financial crisis.
