Benedito isn’t linked to the Rosell board in any way, and his ties to Laporta are tenuous, verging on ephemeral. His principles led him to resign the Laporta board in 2009. His approach and platform, his very demeanor speak of seny, that Catalan quality that implies calm and logic. He loves the club and what it stands for, and has ideas for a strong future. He wants the club to be for everyone, and would lift the membership restrictions that exist. This is huge because although Bar?a is a Catalan institution, it wants to be a global club. So act like one, and stop using restrictive policies in an attempt to preserve a mandate. Rosell did it, and Bartomeu shows no sign of finding it at all distasteful. That’s wrong.
Yes, it disappoints me that Benedito bandies around names such as Monchi and Veratti when it’s abundantly clear that neither will be coming to the club should he win. That is a part of campaigning that I would have preferred he stuck to the high road on. Benedito has been asking the right questions, not just slinging mud. He also didn’t help his cause by “unveiling” a shirt sponsor, an energy drink company that sounds like a half-baked vanity project at best. Appearing desperate and gullible is not something the third-place candidate needs in a race with a large number of potential undecideds. http://futseller.mobi/
