Puyol and Villa congratulate new president


From the Spain training camp in South Africa, Carles Puyol and David Villa have congratulated Sandro Rosell on his election to the presidency of FC Barcelona.

Team captain Carles Puyol, in declarations made to the EFE news agency in Potchefstroom, explained: “I followed the campaign together with my Barca team-mates who are here with the national squad. We got the news from friends and the internet and I saw the results of the election. I’d just like to congratulate Sandro on his victory and thank Laporta for the seven years he’s been the president of FC Barcelona”.

Delighted with high turnout

I hope everything goes well for the new Board because that’ll mean things are going well for the Club. The most important thing is that so many people have voted”.

However, Puyol also praised the work done by Joan Laporta since 2003: “The seven years of Laporta’s mandate have been magnificent. We’ve won a lot of trophies”.

"I’ve just arrived and I don’t have the experience of my team-mates. The only thing I can do from South Africa is congratulate the new president, wish him all the luck in the world and hope he helps Barca continue to achieve success”.
