Joan Laporta thanked them for this gesture and emphasised FC Barcelona’s commitment to Catalonia and Catalan culture: “Thank you for the welcome, because FC Barcelona does a lot for the country and we, in our own way, have a deep rooted Catalan identity. FC Barcelona does everything necessary to promote the Catalan culture. We have put on shows to prove this fact and it is really good to see how people recognise this”.
