First meeting of the Sports Commission
Jordi Mestre has met with the directors of the club’s Sports Commission to set the guidelines for the future. The man in charge of youth football has explained how things will work for those with institutional responsibilities in said area.
Jordi Mestre outlined a series of basic points that establish the new ways in which the Sports
Commission will operate.
The directors on the Sports Commission will have to observe certain
obligations and standards when representing youth teams both at home and away.
Mestre wanted to make it clear how the representatives responsibilities differ to those of
the coaching staff, whose decisions relate far more directly to sorting issues.
Among other things, the Sports Commission’s members will have to ensure that all staff
behave properly both on and off the pitch, will have to act austerely on away trips and there is a
need to establish good relations will all other clubs and to adapt to the varying conditions of
different home sides.
President wants humility
President Sandro Rosell also appeared in Sala Paris to direct a short
speech to the members of the Sports Commission who had gathered to listen to Jordi Mestre.
Rosell welcomed them to their posts and explained that there are two basic institutional
premises to be observed: “you represent Barça and we mustn’t be arrogant, we have to be
humble, that is non negotiable”.
