David Saura

FC Barcelona president Joan Laporta stated that the club's technical secretary was doing a good job as he spoke to the media during the presentation of Martín Cáceres on Friday.

The Blaugrana chief stated that he feels "the team is reinforced in a stable and coherent way" and that he is convinced that "the new signings will bear fruit". He then added: "I am sure that the Barcelonismo will recover the excitement."

New arrivals

Reflecting on the cost of the new arrivals, Laporta said that they were "inside the parametres of the market" and denied that the club had paid over-the-odds for players. "The investment on any player always depends on performance," he explained. "I think that balance is positive. That is an objective fact."

Keita and Euro players back a week later

Praise for Spain trio

The new Barça coach also took advantage of his time in front of the press to praise Xavi, Andrés Iniesta and Carles Puyol for their success with the Spain team. "They deserve a lot of merit for what they have done," he said. "They have broken the famous quarter final jinx and have relieved a lot of the pressure. I am delighted that we have three players of that level."

Respect for Rosell
Joan Laporta was asked about a press conference held by his former vice president; Sandro Rosell, in Barcelona where he announced he would be standing at teh next presidential elections. "I respect the decision of any Barça member, but now we are in the process of voting on the referendum," he said. "There will be plenty of time to look at models and projects for moving the club forward. I expect that to be in 2010, when it becomes obligatory, but now we are not doing that."
