Under Laporta’s presidency - it will be a Joan Cruyff based model. The first team will consist of youth players and as well differential players from worldwide. #Laporta
There will more importance to women’s football, as well La Masia’s women’s football. There will also be structural improvements. #Laporta

More La Masia: Not only there is a guarantee of economic and sporting sustainability, but infrastructure will also be improvised. #Laporta
Barcelona will become the center of sporting excellence, under Laporta. There will be a solid sports structure, with working coaches and staff team. #Laporta 🤝
Sports Mentoring is another aspect under Laporta’s presidency. Having a good mentality, sporting character and personality is key. There will a mentor for each athlete for personal and sporting growth, and as well as mentally and emotionally. #Laporta 👥
Meanwhile, this is the response from Victor Font and co regarding Albert Benaiges, who was in SAF’s organizational chart, being part of Joan Laporta’s presentation. The former will be talking more about this topic in a press conference later today. #ElectionsFCB
Under Joan Laporta’s presidency, Artificial Intelligence (AI) will be given more prominence and the aim would be to become a benchmark in the sporting world. #Laporta 🖥

The scouting department of Barcelona will be very powerful and improvised under his presidency, says Laporta. #FCB 🔍👥
Joan Laporta says that he see’s Koeman as what a normally coach should do, like challenging his players and saying that they can’t fail against Elche. He also adds that when he is elected as president, he hopes to see the club alive in all competitions. #Koeman 👀
Joan Laporta: “For Messi to smile again, he has to be convinced that the team can win Leagues, Cups and the Champions League again. This is what can convince him to continue and I will try to make him see that this will be the case” #Messi 🇦🇷
He added: “We must have a team that will return to win titles and make Messi feel loved again” #Messi 🇦🇷

Laporta: “Barcelona is a great club and there are no transitional seasons here. The change of mentality will be imminent as soon as we make some small changes that have to be made” #FCB 🔵🔴
End of thread, phew. 🏁
ℹ️ Also: No mention of who the SD is exactly going to be yet. Laporta didn’t want to say any particular names because they’re still midway through the season and out of respect for those who are currently at the club. He wanted to continue and maintain his coherence.
ℹ️ But from what I can say, Alemany (who is great signing) & Valdes are definitely confirmed. He also hopes to have Benaiges & Alexanco for La Masia under his presidency. Yuste also mentioned that Puyol is a person they’d love to have if/once elected..and on Xavi & Iniesta: ⤵️

Garcia Pimienta [Barcelona B Coach] told SER: "We are talking about the Barça DNA, but within the DNA you have to be a winner and competitive. This club aspires to win everything. If you don't have a winning mentality within your DNA, you can't play here" #FCB 🔵🔴
Pimienta: "The Barça DNA is a different way of understanding football - that they truly understand the game, they use both legs, they position themselves well, they think faster than others and that before receiving they already know what to do" #FCB 🔵🔴
Pimienta: "I assure you there are players [from the subsidiary] with this profile & that they can play in the first team, then there are other circumstances. But we must be faithful, believe, and give these players a chance, I am convinced that they have a level to spare" #FCB 👥

ℹ️ “How come we are interested in this player when we have no president?” — Barcelona’s current sporting area, which is led by Ramon Planes, has been doing a market search in these last few months ahead of the elections this March, as advanced by multiple sources. More below. ⤵️
Planes is filing reports on different kinds of players they could look into & positions which we need to be reinforced. That’s why we’ve been linked to players like Isak, Nunez or Bryan Gil, though not all reports which links us to a player from another club rn are credible. 📑
All these reports are going to be for the next president & his management who will arrive in March after the elections. They will arrive at the club w/ many reports on different players the club should consider looking into & what positions should be strengthened in the team. 👥

(🌕) Ronald Koeman, the candidates & the technical secretariat agree that it is a priority to sign a CF. Erling Håland is a name that pleases everyone, though Barça will need to sell players & lower their wage bill before signing him. @ffpolo #Transfers #ElectionsFCB 🇳🇴

More: ⤵️
ℹ️ Among the presidential candidates, especially Joan Laporta & Victor Font, there is talk of Erling Håland’s possible signing if certain circumstances occur. @ffpolo #Transfers #ElectionsFCB 🇳🇴
ℹ️ There are other names too, other than just Håland. Aguero is a player who is considered to have ‘Barça level’ by some candidates and that he would be a good incentive to try and renew Messi. Ronald Koeman likes Depay & Lukaku. Ramon Planes likes Lautaro. @ffpolo #Transfers 👥

Pedri told @AP: “I've always loved Iniesta and his way of playing football, the way he plays both on and off the field. He was my reference and I've tried to imitate him. I think I’ve seen all of Iniesta’s videos on YouTube and I had never missed a game of his” #FCB 🇪🇸⭐️
Pedri, on his combinations with Messi: “Maybe that's something I learned from Andres, but the truth is they're things that happen on the field. If you suddenly listen to Leo, you know you can give him the ball because he'll create danger & end up marking as usual” @AP #FCB 🇦🇷🤝🇪🇸
Pedri, on Koeman: “One day he put me aside & had told me that he didn't know much about me, that he had barely seen me play and I’d have to show him what I can do in training. I got motivation out of that. I knew I had to work as hard as anyone to win my place” @AP #FCB 🇪🇸
