A rival to Joan Laporta in the FC Barcelona presidential elections, Victor Font believes he could have prevented the departure of Lionel Messi.

FC Barcelona knew that sooner or later they would have to evolve without Lionel Messi. Nevertheless, the Catalan club did not believe that this would happen this summer and especially under the conditions we know. As the Argentine came to the end of his contract with Barca, he agreed with Joan Laporta to sign a new lease and extend his adventure in Catalonia. However, for economic reasons, this extension could not be made, causing a huge earthquake in Barcelona with the departure of Lionel Messi .

“I am convinced that with me, Messi would have stayed”

While Joan Laporta had made the extension of Lionel Messi a priority during his presidential campaign, therefore, he did not succeed. The Argentine left FC Barcelona , something that might not have happened if Victor Font had been elected. Also a candidate for the presidency of Barca, he explained for La Vanguardia: “I am convinced that with me, Messi would have stayed. We had a plan and I'm sure we would have succeeded. Real Madrid have applied a 10% pay cut to the entire football and basketball team. Here there has been nothing and if there is no drop in payroll, it comes at a time when there can be no magic. ”
