Victor Font who will be running for president in 2021 explained his project in an interview with Olé. The 47-year-old told that he dreams of a team made up mainly by La Masia.
“Our dream is to have a team made up mainly of players from La Masia. This means we’re betting on the style that Johan Cruyff left us. Only those players who clearly make the difference and who can fit into the side should be signed.”, said Font.
Victor Font believes that Lionel Messi prioritizes a sporting project over his contract and that the club should have closed a new contract deal with him much earlier.
“For Messi, the sports project is more important than his contract. Leo will be free to negotiate with any club and, therefore, an agreement between Barça and the player should have been finalized before.”, added the presidential candidate.
“I don’t had the pleasure of meeting Messi, yet. But we hope to explain our project to him soon.”

Official: Barcelona confirm Pedri muscular injury
All victories come with a cost and Barcelona’s great triumph over Sevilla is no exception. Sadly, the Catalans’ young prodigy, Pedri, had to leave the pitch in the second half of the clash and now, the club has officially confirmed that the 18-year-old had sustained a muscular injury.
As of right now, however, we still don’t know how serious it is and we’ll have to wait for further information, which is most likely to arrive tomorrow. Unfortunately, the early speculations are not good as it seems Pedri could indeed be out of commission for a couple of weeks at least.
Needless to say, that’s a huge hit for Barcelona since the schedule is unrelenting. Soon, it will be time to face Sevilla again in the Copa del Rey and also Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League. Doing so without Pedri could indeed be troublesome.
But we also have to wonder how did it come to this injury. The 18-year-old is a key member of the squad so it’s understandable Ronald Koeman would want him to play all the time.
However, that might be the very crux of the problem too. With so little rest in-between the games, it was just a matter of time before Pedri’s body could take no more.
Still, not all is lost and he should be back in time to help Barcelona finish the season strong. And besides, now the youngster can finally get some well-deserved rest.
Hopefully the team can manage without him for a short period of time.
