Barcelona Finally Appoints A New President After Bartomeu's Exit.

Barcelona has just appointed a new president after Bartomeu resigned last year. Barca had done their elections today and everybody including Messi voted and finally, Juan Laporta won and is now Barca's new president.

Bartomeu had resigned due to the pressure from last season's failure and humiliations, and knowing fully well he would be kicked out, he decided to resign. Although, he was arrested this year for criminal cases against Barca, thus ruining his reputation and the little likeness few Barca supporters still had for him.

There were 3 candidates, Laporta, Font and Freixa, but the former Barca president got appointed for the second time(although not consecutively).

Laporta made 3 promises if he gets appointed as president and they were; first, he will keep Messi from exiting Barca, second, he won't sack any coach and lastly, he'd sign Halaand over Mbappe. He likes Halaand while Font preferred Mbappe.

I think that Barca's is heading the right direction, when Laporta was president, Barca won 2 trebles, 2009 and 2015 seasons. And they made some prolific signings too like Neymar jnr.

Do you think Laporta would be the best for Barcelona?
