FOOTBALL Laporta’s steel optimism

Title with a phrase that I borrow Valdano from an article in El País and that perfectly defines the way in which the president of Barcelona faces


Title with a phrase that I borrow Valdano from an article in El País and that perfectly defines the way in which the president of Barcelona faces the situation. The bad weather good face is very small before the indesmayable spirit of this man, who, in the middle of the ruin of the club he presides, presents Ferran Torres, announces Morata and warns urbi et orbi that he is going for Haaland and for whatever . “We have returned,” he says, in an attitude that La Vanguardia rightly describes as ‘The spirit of the banner’. Again a here we go! like that “You want to see you again” with which he got off the hook in the ground zero of Real Madrid.

And, of course, a new stadium. More moral than Alcoyano, it was said before. Meanwhile, Mateo Alemany, much more prudent in his manifestations, goes out of his way to open a gap in the sinister accounts of Barça through which to strain the cost of Ferran Torres. There are a couple of tremendous salaries in useless players in practice, Coutinho (20 clean) and Umtiti (13). Dembélé, who can do something at odd times, is 16. The club would find itself with a song in its teeth with which it would go right now to wherever it has thought to go in June and release half of its file. Because the other two I do not see that there is a human way to place them.

For now, while they manage or not to register him, Ferran Torres has tested positive for COVID to gradually enter the environment. And also Laporta, which is not surprising, because he was clinging to him for half a day and although his optimism is made of steel, it is seen that his body is not so. While he is in quarantine, Mateo Alemany will continue with the serious task, trying to braid the bobbin lace that he has to present to Thebes to see if it works. For now, Xavi continues to patiently rearm a team in which for the goal, in Linares, he will not be able to count on even Luuk de Jong who, incidentally, did what he could in Mallorca.
