Rosell calls for packed Camp Nou on Wednesday

The president of FC Barcelona has asked the supporters to come on Wednesday to the Camp Nou to get behind the team in the second leg of the Spanish Supercup final against Real Madrid.

Incident on arrival
The coach transporting the FC Barcelona directors was hit by a stone on arrival at the Santiago Bernabéu. Rosell said “it was a massive shock … but there are lunatics in all corners. Thank God nothing happened and it was a mere anecdote.”
After the 2-2 draw at the Santiago Bernabéu, Barça are in a great position to claim their third consecutive Spanish Supercup. Sandro Rosell said after the match that “I want to call on all Barça fans to come and support the team because they deserve it … our supporters can do what we can’t get from training”.

Happy with team

After the first clásico of the 2011/12 season, Rosell said “we made a good impression. I’m very pleased with what I saw … But you could tell that Madrid had had more days to prepare.”

He also congratulated Pep Guardiola, who has maintained his unbeaten managerial record at the Bernabéu.

Cesc, one of us

The other big story of the day is that an agreement in principle has been reached with Arsenal for the transfer of Cesc Fàbregas. “Cesc is one of us and I’m happy that he’s coming back home”, said Rosell. “His arrival makes the group stronger.” On the negotiations, he said “we have paid what we wanted to pay. No more no less”.
