Jordi Cruyff returns to the FC Barcelona after a long and enriquecedora path. The son of one of the biggest legends in the history of the Barcelona club. It will be the sportive adviser of the president Joan Laporta. It expects him an arduous work in front of the difficult situation of the club. Like this it has explained it in the first interview that concedes since it was fichado.

'Mark' was the newspaper commissioned to make the interview, where Cruyff was interrogated on multiple appearances, between them the reason whereby had taken so much in closing his arrival to the Barcelona: "it Is truth that has taken a lot. It was in a team in which it had done four months of pre-season and put in a bubble. It was impossible that somebody went in fast in China if it is that they gave him the visa, that that was another. It would have left the abandoned club when they always had been very correct with me. The things it is necessary to do them of a correct ethical way".

Jordi was interrogated on which will be his specific role inside the Barcelona club, to what answered that "it treats to help and add. Have a profile in which I have travelled enough and have had several roles in different areas. I have worked well with trainers without that they see me like a threat. Always I have formed pineapple with them. I have been in countries in which I have had to make all type of negotiations. Places of big reputation negotiator of which have learnt a lot. Also I have commissioned me of signings and to form a sportive structure. And I have been trainer. I have been in different chairs of the table of the football and this is what come to do, help in what it do lacking", exposed Cruyff.

It denied old rumours

A lot of fans and half especularon on the possible arrival of Jordi Cruyff to the Barcelona bench like substitute of Koeman, to what answered with forcefulness: "Neither in my head neither in the one of anybody is the idea to substitute to Koeman. If that had been my way, before already would have accepted to train in Spain when I have had the opportunity in the last years. Neither it has insinuated me this possibility neither goes in in my plans. I know to Ronald from does almost 30 years and he already knows that with me has a person to help. I do not think that Laporta referred to train, rather to my condition of todoterreno. And besides, on my part, it would seem me very ugly, have my principles".

Likewise, it referred to the work of Koeman during the past campaign: "First of all it is necessary to stand out the fault of institutional stability that there was. It jointed everything: economic subjects, a pandemia, a temporary directive that prevented to take decisions in the market or schedule... It was a very unstable situation in which Ronald was the visible head of the club. Had a staff conditioned by the economic needs in which there were a lot of youngsters that have altibajos in his performance, something logical. It went him his second maximum goleador and did not bring substitute weakening to the team by financial reasons. And for more inri the team of the that was your goleador remains champion. Because Suárez is a specialist in marking goals when the team does not play well. Rasca His golito and 1-0. Like this also they win Leagues".
