The ex director of the FC Barcelona and one of the three official candidates to the presidency of the club, Toni Freixa, the night of this Monday participated in the program 'Onze' of Esport3, where highlighted that his project is the only independent of political and economic powers. "We want to keep the club with total independence of the political and economic power. There is interest from a lot of political fields that want that the president was his", recalcó Freixa, that also added that "from the political power has tried join to Laporta and to Font", his rivals in the coming elections.

"Our candidature is the only that it can guarantee that only it looks for the best for the Barça. We have not gathered us with Puigdemont, as it has done Laporta, and am convinced that this independence will give us the victory in these elections", aseveró the Barcelonan lawyer.

In spite of that Joan Laporta was the one who arrasó in the recolección of signatures regarding his rivals (9.625 signatures validated, with regard to the 4.431 of Font and the 2.634 of the own Freixa), the ex director of the Barcelona institution signalled that this is not synonymous of victory: "Laporta is not the clear favourite. That it obtain more supports in the signatures does not mean that it go to win the elections. It does time that seat that it would be thing of two and here are we. This collected of signatures forces us to do a reflection because be precandidato was not so easy".

Likewise, Freixa descartó the option of the vote by email for these elections, after being postponed of 24 January to 7 March because of the strict confinement: "we Are in hands of the General Secretary of l'Esport so that it can vote by post. The vote of censorship has driven us to celebrate elections in the same date that were foreseen by the previous managerial board. And now we are in hands of an agent that has capacities limited in full pandemia. The electronic vote does not guarantee conditions of security. It does not apply to the Generalitat neither in other elections", exposed the lawyer.

It will defend to the Barça in front of the estamentos referee's

Finally, Toni Freixa showed inflexible with the arbitration of Gil Manzano in the final of the Supercopa of Spain in front of the Athletic of Bilbao, and recalcó that will defend to the Barça in front of the estamentos referee's: "Like president always will react against these arbitrations and will do the work that touch to defend the club. I will do it taking care the institutional relations and raising the voice publicly. The Barça has to be present in the institutions and has to do respect. In these moments, the deal received differs diametrically of the that has received the Madrid. Lose a title always hurts. It sounds to victimismo, but when you receive a regrettable arbitration like the one of the Sunday... It is the one of always", sentenced.
