Joan Laporta, President of Barcelonaspoke on the sidelines of the ordinary general meeting of the Blaugrana club.
WORDS – «Our club is busy. Barça’s history doesn’t get dirty. I refer to the most brutal and reputation-damaging attack: the “Neregreira case”. It is a smear campaign and we cannot allow that. No matter how hard they search and slander, they will find nothing because we have done none of the things we are accused of. There were some technical arbitration reports with invoices and transfers. They believe this money was used to purchase referees. We have proven that this money was used for arbitration advice. Some of us try and the others can’t because we’re not accused of anything. This “Negreira case” has been exploited by those who want to damage Barça’s reputation. You often have to travel to Madrid for work and you notice that there is a sociological Madridism in the centers of political, economic, media and sporting power».
