FC Barcelona – La Liga: Laporta not the same man who showed his underwear at the airport

FC Barcelona – La Liga Raul Varela gives his opinion

Laporta not the same man who showed his underwear at the airport

For better or worse, Barcelona presidential candidate Joan Laporta isn’t the same person he was when he was last Barcelona president, but he retains the same essence, which could be key as nostalgic eyes look back on an unforgettable era.

Laporta, who was once pictured with his trousers down at airport security, is basing his campaign on two key elements: silently working to win over the Catalan establishment, while also making noise in the Madrid press, opening old wounds. A classic political tactic.

The former president is the clear favourite to win the elections, but now comes the uncertainty of the voting intentions of those who backed pre-candidates now eliminated.

COVID-19 has threatened these elections at every turn, but the provisional date for the vote is January 24.

That’s still a long way off in politics, but Laporta is in a good position and has reason to be confident of a second go at the presidency.
