Athletistic / Football. Barcelona President Joan Laporta has responded to the new circumstances in the case of former vice-president of the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) Arbitration Commission José Negreira. The Catalan club is accused of corruption.

“There has always been a sociological madrilism in the centers of power in Spain. I have already fought it and I won. Now I defend the interests of Barcelona. We are used to such a fight, we are used to the fact that madrilism is covered by the media and sports media.

As for the “Negreira case”, we will see if everything goes to court. I am a lawyer and I am calm because this case has no chance of success. We have a very good team of lawyers. Madrid took advantage of the ‘Negreira case’ to tarnish the name of Barcelona and its history and destabilize our club,” Laporta said according to

The day before, October 18, it became known that Barcelona president Joan Laporta had been transferred from witness status to defendant status in the Negreira affair.
