FC Barcelona presidential candidate Victor Font spoke in the TV3 show tonight. The Spanish businessman explained his thoughts on the crisis at the club and urgently called for early elections.
“We asked for elections right after the game. We always call for institutional stability, but Barça have hit the bottom and the institutional stability can only be achieved through elections. We have been working in this transition for years, but now there’s no time to lose. We must limit the transitional period and avoid postponing the elections as we will lose more years.”, said Font.
The 48-year-old added that Xavi Hernandez and Pep Guardiola are the only two managers who are capable of coaching Barcelona: “I think that Xavi and Guardiola are the only two people who can take on the challenge of coaching this Barça. We need to manage a transition with a home-grown coach and start making new fire.”
Victor Font will run for president as soon as Bartomeu steps off. His sporting project is named Sí al futur (“Yes to the future”).
