Lluis Fernandez Ala, one of the main candidates for the presidency of Barcelona in the next elections scheduled for January 24, has spoken about “the next Pep Guardiola”, revealing that he is already at the club.
Ala spoke a few days ago about his candidacy and desire to become president of the club from Camp Nou.
He added that he believes Francisco Javier Garcia Pimienta, the current Barcelona B coach, is the man who leads the club in a way reminiscent of Guardiola in the late 2000s.
Guardiola, a Barcelona legend as a player and as a coach, took control of the first team in 2008 after spending a season with Barcelona B. He led the club to a period of great domestic and European success before leaving in 2012.
“Garcia Pimienta will be our Guardiola,” said Fernandez Ala.
“When Ernesto Valverde was fired, we have to bet on Garcia Pimienta, and now we have to do the same if Ronald Koeman is removed,” concluded the Barcelona presidential candidate.
Fernandez Ala, a businessman and politician from Sant Cugat del Valles, also revealed that he has already secured a sporting director, a man with Barcelona DNA who is currently operating at another club. / Telegraph /
