Defeated Presidential Candidates Congratulate Rosell


There was unanimity among the three defeated presidential candidates in congratulating the winner, Sandro Rosell, and they all expressed their satisfaction with the record turnout.

Marc Ingla, Jaume Ferrer and Agustí Benedito, the defeated candidates in the presidential elections were among the first people to congratulate president elect Sandro Rosell on his victory.

The importance of a clear winner

The three candidates admitted that the overwhelming nature of Mr Rosell’s victory could only be good for the health of the Club. Marc Ingla told us. “It will allow him to begin his mandate with tranquillity. It’s good for Barca that there has been a clear winner. He’s a cast-iron, thoroughbred Barca fan. I’d like to congratulate him on his victory”.

Meanwhile, Jaume Ferrer expressed similar sentiments: “The overwhelming victory is good for the Club because it gives legitimacy to the Board”.

All in the same boat

Agustí Benedito wished Sandro Rosell “the very best of luck, because his luck will be Barca’s luck”.

Ferrer disappointed

The most disappointed of the three defeated candidates was Jaume Ferrer: “I’m surprised because neither the polls nor the feeling today told us we would get such a bad result”.

For his part, Mr Ingla told us. "I’m grateful for the participation and to the thousands of members who voted for us. Perhaps I put my name forward too late”. Finally, Mr Benedito admitted: “People have put many hours into this. We did an 8-day campaign against candidates who had been preparing for years. I believe we did a good job”.
