Lluis Bassat – “I wouldn’t sign Lewandowski if I were you”.
After a short break, the publicist Lluis Bassat who ran for president of Barcelona in the 2003 elections, criticizes Barcelona’s president Juan Laporta in a statement that was published in La Vanguardia by saying, “Barca is not a haberdashery.”
In an interview with La Vanguardia this Sunday, Lluís Bassat, a publicist and well-known figure in Barcelona since his surprising loss to Joan Laporta in the 2003 mayoral election, breaks his silence. He says that he has been quiet during the interview for a long time.
Bassat goes into detail about how the institution is doing right now, but not before leaving a provocative headline that shows that not everyone likes the idea of Robert Lewandowski joining the team: “it would be better if he was signed years ago but no, not now, he will be 34 years old this year.

Lluis Bassat: “Barca is not a family business”.
He tells Laporta’s management that Barca is not a family business, a tailor shop, or a grocery store. Bassat is very critical of how Laporta makes money. He also criticizes the way Barca’s president runs the club, saying, “If you hang out with small people, you will become a dwarf.” If you hang out with big people, you’ll become a bigger person yourself.
Barca is a company that makes billions of euros in sales every year. If it were listed on the stock market, its value would be so huge. It is a company that asks its employees to do very serious work. When the club suddenly lost its general manager, who, as far as I know, was a great person, Laporta volunteered to take over.
I am sure that’s not what you want to do. You can’t wear the barret of president, general manager, or person who signs players. It is impossible to know everything there is to know.
