The Barça tour arrived in New York
The Barça tour has come to New York as it is one of the most important and famous places in the world, right at its heart, Times Square, FC Barcelona was present in the form of one of the famous advertisements that are projected there and waiting more novelties in Barcelona key in terms of signings.
Barça is very determined to leave its mark during the tour of the United States, either on a football level, with a team that has left a good feeling in the last three games on American soil, or on an advertising level thanks to its campaigns with great visual impact , the latest in a place as iconic as Times Square.
After the successful as well as provocative digital banner in Las Vegas, where the Barça president, Joan Laporta, challenged Real Madrid before the classic, the Catalan entity has taken advantage of its stay in New York to once again exhibit a dynamic and luminous poster large in the heart of Manhattan.
Unlike the banner in the ‘city that never sleeps’ and the one displayed during the electoral campaign a few meters from the Santiago Bernabeu with the famous “want to see you again”, in December 2020, President Laporta does not appear on the new poster and it is simply informative, without the eternal rival as the recipient of the message.
The president of FC Barcelona, Joan Laporta, said last Thursday in New York that the club is putting together a “very compensated team” and assured that the “players want to come to Barça again” after the signing of Frenchman Jules Koundé who has met today.
In the last stop of the US tour, Laporta led an event to celebrate the Barça club’s alliance with ACNUR, the refugee agency with the UN, together with coach Xavi Hernández and historical and current players, such as Thierry Henry , Juliano Belletti, Jordi Alba or Sergi Roberto.
“We want to be part of the solution” (to the refugee crisis), said in a speech in English the president, who signed an agreement last month in Geneva whereby the players’ shirts now bear the UNHCR logo, and the club will donate funds and equipment for four years for the agency’s projects in various countries.
Once that presentation was over, Laporta addressed the media and expressed great satisfaction at Koundé’s arrival, thanking the club’s board of directors for “strengthening” the squad and making a team “that can participate in all competitions with the intention to win them.
“I have the feeling that we are working well, the players want to come to Barça again. We are making a well balanced team and there is a lot of competition, with a minimum of two players per position who are very good”, he explained.
Laporta, in this sense, stated that he is “trying to comply with the coach’s will” in reinforcing the forward, midfield and defense, and did not rule out the possibility of “some more incorporation” that “would surely focus on the defensive line.”
Asked about the alleged concern or anger of his rivals over the latest signings, he attributed it to “ignorance” about the club’s economic status and made a clinical simile: last year he was “terminal”, then he went “to the ICU” and now he has “leaved the hospital with crowbars”.
Thus, he alluded to the entity’s “high-value assets” and to the recent sale of part of FC Barcelona’s television rights in an agreement “for 25 years, not for 50, as they proposed” and that will allow it to score a accounting profit of 667.5 million euros.
He also spoke about the Argentine Leo Messi about whom he suggested a possible return a few days ago that was ruled out for the moment by Xavi: “It is an aspiration that I have as president and I would like it to happen, I have been co-responsible for that ending that I consider provisional” .
“Messi’s stage at Barça did not end as we all wanted, it ended very conditioned by economic reasons and we have a moral debt, in that sense we would like the end of his career to be with the Barça shirt and applauded by the fields at which go,” he added.
The event, which took place inside the Rockefeller Center, summoned the city’s mayor, Eric Adams, who highlighted the footballing character of the local population and applauded the fact that the club not only goes out to win on the sports field, but also on the “field of life”, helping the United Nations.
At the Red Bull Arena in Harrison (New Jersey), a dozen impatient fans came to wait for their idols to leave at the gates of the center, all wearing Blaugrana shirts or accessories.
