We have not made it. Never. I also want to say that I am convinced that Barça employees are honest people and have nothing to do with this unfortunate event. It is an act of bad faith. The third thing is that in the meeting that we had at six in the afternoon, I wanted to defend the idea of defending the merger of the candidates. He had already advised that we had a short cushion to cut through. It is not true that we have not made the cut. I spoke with Minguella and interpreted that my colleagues would agree on that merger". And it continued: "My board of directors did not approve the union and we preferred to withdraw the candidacy. We prefer to stay outside. I told Freixa that we would not join forces. It has been a magnificent experience. We would like to have the opportunity in a future election to present our candidacy. The member will not be wrong, he will choose the best president and we will row in favor to help the club in this complex situation. It has been an honor", finished.
Rousaud also explained that he had conversations with Víctor Font to join forces and with Fernández Alà. In addition, he assured that "We will not support Toni Freixa. I have not decided who I will vote for yet".

Font’s bold Xavi promise if he’s elected Barcelona president
And it is that in recent days the future of the Egarense has been discussed a lot, which has been unmarked from the electoral process, making it clear that his desire to dress as a Barça player does not depend on the candidate who wins, something that for some has weakened Font’s candidacy , who had based a large part of his speech on Xavi Hernández.
Previously, in El Partidazo de Cope, Font had already made it clear that for him Xavi has a key role in Messi’s continuity. "The best to convince Messi is Xavi. You know him perfectly well. Leo trusts Xavi’s abilities, I know. It will have a very important place in this process. Messi is irreplaceable"declared Font.

It is FC Barcelona who will have to make the decision and obviously that is what they have to do, knowing that tomorrow there is this technical meeting with them ”, said the minister.

Regarding the economic aspect, Farré assured that "we will do a very specific audit and ask for responsibilities if they arise", but he didn’t talk about picking up rugs, because "you only find crap".
Farré, who was accompanied by Albert Villalta and Eduard Senties, and vice-president JosepTriadó also acted as moderator, insisted on carrying out the Espai Barça project, but without mortgages, but through financing from a concessionaire, and left a clear message : "It won’t cost the club a penny". It will be accompanied by the ‘Barcelona land dreams’ project with leisure and activities before and after the matches. There was talk of sustainability, even on the team coach.
Farré already proposed in 2015 the creation of the Barça brand and continues with his idea to generate "between 2,000 and 3,000 jobs" and renegotiate the contract with Nike. And they want to reach an agreement with the Catalunya brand for sponsorship. Another key aspect for income and that "the Camp Nou does not look like a neutral field" is the creation of a loyalty card, because "there are between 600 and 700 million culés around the world". In addition, a first team training session will be open one day a week. "I am concerned, but not alarmed. It is not true that the club is bankrupt, but the debt must be reduced", Farré assured.
In the sports field, he was accompanied by Joan Solé and Alexandra Bogunyà, of whom Farré said that "will raise the Champions that we need, that of women’s football".
La Masia must be the pillar of everything, accompanied by great signings. In this sense, he said that "Neymar’s predisposition is evident and is a way to excite Leo Messi. They want to play together". He recalled that the formula would be "very cheap", through the transfer request. And he added: "More and more I believe that Neymar was a hidden sale and that he did not want to leave".
Farré gave great importance to the figure of the sports director, yet to be revealed, of Xavi said that "A lot of pressure is being put on him, he has to come when there are no ex-teammates", so his technician is Ronald Koeman: "Keep calm, we cannot enter like a bulldozer".
Asked about Florentino Pérez’s statements, he broke out: "You can have a face, but not so much. It is very clear that Madrid receives arbitration aid, the thing at the hands of Ramos was a scandal".
Jordi Farré is, in his own words, "obsessed" with the collection of signatures and it is very clear. "If I pass the signatures, I will be the president of Barça. I do not have any doubt".
