Toni Freixa, candidate for the elections of the FC Barcelona On March 7, he spoke this past Thursday about his sports project in case of winning the elections. The Catalan already said on Monday that Erling Haaland y Kylian Mbappé they were recordable players for Barça and this time he has gone further and has recognized that he has a closed agreement with two attacking stars and with a level defender.
“There is an agreement with two differential players in attack and a defense“He said in ‘El Larguero’ of the ‘Cadena SER’. The former Barça manager, however, did not want to give names and it is not known which two ‘cracks’ he has applauded for the lead. It seems difficult to believe that they are Haaland or Mbappé, so we will have to wait to see if he decides to say who they are soon.
In addition, he stressed that Barça is the preferred destination for great footballers, since it is where they have more options to win important prizes, such as the Golden Ball. “Any player who wants to win the Ballon d’Or knows that he will only win it if he wears the Barcelona shirt“, he pointed out, dropping that this would be one of the motivations of the ‘cracks’ that he has ‘signed’.
On the other hand, he also confirmed Ronald Koeman as coach in case of winning the elections. “If I am president, Koeman will remain coach. For his leadership, courage … He is a club man, “he commented, to later talk about the future of Leo Messi.” I hope Messi stays. I see him motivated to continue and I am convinced that nowhere can be better than in Barcelona, ”he said.
Freixa charged hard against the VAR and the referees
In addition, he took the opportunity to criticize the application of the VAR and spoke of an arbitration scandal in LaLiga. “In the resumption of LaLiga after confinement and so far this season, a scandal could be taken out of each day. And with a clear injured party: Barça. I don’t know when Florentino called Rubiales, but in any case, what is evident is that there is inequality and that Barça has bad luck with arbitration decisions“he declared.
But Freixa’s words about the referees did not stop there and he also made it clear that Clément Lenglet’s penalty against Cádiz did not seem to him at all. “Without going further, Lenglet does not touch the Cádiz player in the last day. What did not protest? Yes, that also puts me in a bad mood, “he said, also throwing a ‘dart’ at Barça’s French central defender.
