It is necessary to remember that five of them -Yuste, Castro, Macià, Cubells and Fort- already did team with him in his previous stage. "For me it is a pleasure have all these people, that are extraordinary and of big professional success. They put to the service of the Barcelona because they want to to the club. They put his talent and sabiduría to the service of the Barça in a very complicated situation. Economically it is a ruin, but will give him the turn to base of work very done and to sell to the club by all the world", said Joan Laporta.

"It forms part of the rivalry of the world of the football, never have wanted to offend to anybody. Has irony, but already is. Our intention was not that they took it to him badly. Florentino know that it took it to him with sense of the humour. This gives life to all this show that is the football, but without happening you of limits, that are the violence or acts that do not have fit", explained.

I will announce the managerial team along the campaign", signalled.

We have not committed errors of the first week; neither in the second after the meeting with the confederation of penyes. And afterwards, as in the third have visited the distinct headquarters in the crags. We have marked the profile with the message to the partners and to the peñistas. A message that we want to go back the self-esteem to the barcelonismo. Engine of optimism", sentenced.
