“He will be very much missed at FC Barcelona”


Alfons Godall has expressed the club’s sorrow to learn of the death of Sir Bobby Robson. The vice president has fond memories of the year the Englishman was in charge of the first team.

After hearing that Sir Bobby Robson has died, vice president Alfons Godall wished to send his condolences to his family and to the football world via Barça TV and www.fcbarcelona.cat.

“It is the moment for me, in representation of FC Barcelona to express our sorrow, our condolences, and our support to Bobby Robson’s family and to share out sadness with the football world, because we are aware that he was a very well respected person, who made history as both a club and international manager” he said, before adding that “he will be very much missed at FC Barcelona”.

The great 1996-97 season

Godall also remembered the 1996-97 season, when Robson was manager of the first team. “Bobby Robson took the reigns of the first team after the Dream Team era under Johan Cruyff. It was a huge responsibility and I think he did a great job, winning three titles. And we were also able to enjoy lots of goals. I remember the spectacular football of players like Ronaldo, Gica (Popescu), Luis Enrique, Nadal, Guardiola and so many other players that under his management were able to enjoy an excellent season”.
