Thoughts for Lorca
But before mentioning the league title, the Barça president had words to say about the people affected by the earthquake in Lorca (Murcia), news of which came through shortly before the game between Barça and Levante kicked off.
In his first year in charge of FC Barcelona, Sandro Rosell already has two titles. After starting the season with the Spanish Super Cup, 36 league games later and they are league champions yet again. The president spoke of “fantastic joy … the last quarter of an hour seemed to go on for a week.”

Asked what his fondest memory will be of the 2010/11 season, Sandro Rosell said it was “the photo of the team. Of all the players in the Camp Nou with all the fans behind … I have to thank everybody who has contributed their grain of sand … we have all rowed in the right direction.”
