Barcelona president promises to reinforce struggling squad


It is slowly becoming customary for FC Barcelona president Joan Laporta to take to social media to appease the club’s fans after some dismal results. This week was no different as the Blaugrana found themselves being kicked out of the UEFA Champions League at the group stage following a 3-0 loss to Bayern Munich.

Laporta wasted no time to reach out to the fans to assure them that he is still confident that they are moving in the right direction. In the video, he also claimed that there are solid plans to strengthen the squad in January, despite the fact that they are still struggling financially. It is believed that the club is hunting for a forward to strengthen the attack.

“I share your disappointment about our elimination from the Champions League. We all agree that we need to reinforce the first team,” Laporta said, before pointing out the obvious problem regarding the club’s finances.
