Víctor Font is probably the favourite to be the next president of the FC Barcelona in the elections that will celebrate in 2021. The Catalan was speaking with 'The Newspaper' and reviewed the key points of the that will be his electoral program. As it already has said in several occasions, has Xavi Hernández like trainer and the ex midfield player will be his big baza electoral. The candidate trusts that the one of Terrassa accept the challenge, since it sees it sobradamente ready.

"I am convinced that yes it is prepared. To see, will have to assume risks because you always can think that it can prepare better with more time. But I trust the innate capacity of Xavi. He will have to finish to see it and decide, but if you ask me my personal opinion think that yes it is smart", ensured. Besides, it left clear that the current technician of the To the Sadd will have voice and vote in all the sportive decisions.

"We have Xavi to be the angular stone of the sportive project"

Font Discovered for example that his idea is to have Jordi Cruyff like technical secretary because the Dutch has the backrest of Xavi. "Xavi has said that it would like him have he. And we have Xavi to be the angular stone of the sportive project", commented. Besides, the candidate is a cruyffista confeso and thinks that to have to his son at the head of the sportive direction will be important to keep the style of game of the Barça. "We think that have the big luck to be the heirs of a philosophy and style of game that has turned us into the best team of the history. We do not have to renounce to this idea but the other way around, have to reinforce it, and this means to have all those talents that know this idea of the game", signalled.

To the thread of this, the possible future president barcelonista confirmed that his plan is to fill the Barcelona with ex players and legends of the club. Besides, it left clear that the sportive decisions have to take them those that for real know and no the Managerial Board. "Big barcelonistas connoisseurs of the style are not working for the club. From Xavi Hernández, to Puyol, Cruyff, Guardiola, Òscar Garcia Junyent, Joan Vilà, Albert Benaiges… The list is larguísima. Have to some of these people already is a change. The another is the model of government and the taking of decisions in the sportive area, that has to be in hands of ex footballers with capacity for this. The directors without experience in this area can not take part", admitted.

"We can not us allow that players that are not the best earn above the market"

Also it took advantage of to criticise the management of Josep Maria Bartomeu regarding the wages of the players. Font Thinks that only the 'cracks' as Leo Messi would have to have wages so high. "it is seeing That it costs a lot sell to the players when it does fault by fault sometimes of his wages. The best of the world and of the history like Messi has to be the best paid of the world, without any doubt. What can not us allow, and this it is necessary racionalizarlo, is that players that are not the best or that are not the best in his position earn above the market", said.

It does not have fear neither of the changing room neither of Messi

To Bartomeu accuses him also to have him given a lot can to the changing room of the Barça, something that has been hurtful in a lot of cases. The presidential candidate ensures that it does not fear this power, since the fault of this is that the Board has not known to mark limits with the footballers. "I do not fear the power of the changing room. At the end the players what want to is the best for the team and if it asks them the opinion logically give it. I think that east is a problem more than leadership by part of the Managerial Board and no a problem of changing room. At the end they do what leaves them do", recognised.

"I do not fear the power of the changing room. At the end the players do what leaves them do"

Also it carries years saying that Messi has a lot of power in the club and that a lot of decisions take in function of what he thinks. Font Thinks that is not like this and trusts that the relation with him was very fluent. "HSoften with Xavi always reaffirms it to me: that Read is a very normal person. He is ultra competitive, the best of the history, what wants to is to win, sometimes yes that seems that the people has him too fear. It is necessary to treat it with the maximum naturalidad, wants the best for the club, wants to win more Champions, and have to help between all to that it follow doing it", stood out.

Finally, it referred to the 'BarçaGate' that has dotted to the directive of Bartomeu these last months. The candidate culé thinks that the investigation that is doing will not serve of at all and took advantage of to criticise the sucedido. "Zero expectations that it serve of something. It is a movement more than face to the gallery. The audit will not say things that are not documented and that sure that happened with regard to what knew each person. They are facts very grave. In a stage of normality this would have meant resignations of immediate form", concluded.
