For Joan Laporta, being from Barça is “very fun.” «Beyond the permanent suffering in which we live. But it is a fun suffering, with sensations that no one in the world has. “I’m having a great time,” he added, laughing at the events marking the Catalan club’s 124th anniversary, already with a view to the 125th next year. The president was seen happy with Barcelona’s passage to the round of 16 of the Champions League after a difficult victory against Porto, after two years of falling and playing in the Europa League. “I was very happy to win and that we are already classified and that gives us a strong morale for Atlético de Madrid,” he reflected ahead of the Colchonero visit in the League this Sunday.
He also liked to savor that victory for Xavi, showing that he is on the coach’s side. «I was happy for Xavi, who deserves it because he has had to overcome difficult situations, such as injured players. It gave me great satisfaction to see how ‘the Joãos’ scored, to see that Pedri ran 13.5 kilometers playing Pedri and Gavi. And with Frenkie we have the ball again,” he noted.
The president liked it and the warmth of the public helped him continue with a speech in which he regretted that during this week “they only talked about nonsense”, instead of “the two penalties not called in Vallecas against Raphinha and Lewandowski.” . If it happens to Madrid, they will be grinding all week. It’s not victimhood, it’s just that it would have been like that,” he said.
«It is a time of great challenges, of important changes typical of the new era of the club that will take us to a new stage of exciting challenges such as the 125th anniversary. I would ask Barcelona fans to live this moment with the maximum commitment and maximum intensity. We are testimonies of these facts. Because they will be events that will be remembered for decades,” the president stressed before closing the event.
