Rosell can not taste the treasure he has in Africa


Cracks in the 'Aspire Academy' will not come to Barça.

Sandro Rosell and Barcelona will not do business with the Aspire Academy project that since 1997, started his company (BSM) with the royal family of Qatar. Although it controls more than a hundred players from different countries of Asia, Africa and Central America, Laporta does not want to hear no landing of those stars on the hit football at Barcelona.

Rosell believes that in La Masia there is enough talent, and to assess who might misinterpret the recruitment of some of the talented players. Already in pre-campaign, when he was questioned by some of its rivals on this issue, Rosell was always serious and forceful. Keeps great distance between the club and professional commitments, which is becoming more remote, as promised.

Between Qatar and Senegal (where they just formed the players) are pure gold in the football aspect. Future cracks that President Rosell must conform to see on television or from the stands but not their rights. A pity, but his commitment to the partner is more important than it has with this project.

"What has been written about Qatar not true"
Sandro Rosell keeps Barca's agreement with Qatar is quite advantageous to Barcelona and did not affect any provision of professional conduct club Barcelona. Rosell said in an exclusive interview with TV3 conducted by Lluís Canut "When we arrived at the club and we had been sending letters to companies to sponsor the club shirt but no offers made. We got to work on this issue and we were lucky to find an institution to be jointly and wanted to be known. We are very happy because we help them cope. I wonder if Amnesty International denounces Qatar, but I know it is at the UN. What is written is not true ". (via AS)

Tickets for the Cup final, from 60 €


Everyone involved in the match in Valencia met yesterday to discuss security issues and box office.

Enjoy one of the best games you can see today, a final between Barca and Real Madrid, which played at the Mestalla on 20 April, will have a minimum price of 60 euros. If it is much or little may be known only after the match depending on who gets the trophy.

Representatives of Barcelona, Madrid, Valencia and the Spanish Federation met yesterday in the city of Valencia to discuss security and entries. That is why by the Catalans club moved responsible who are responsible for both matters at the club. Although progress was made on several issues, one of the most important, to know what the exact number of tickets each club will not be clarified definitively.

The figure will be announced on March 3, although we know that every team will have 40% capacity Mestalla with a capacity of just over 50,000 spectators, so that the club will have about 20,000 locations. Of these, the club has already made public that 85% allocated to partners and penyes, while the remaining 15% will go to institutional commitments of the organization and sponsors. What is known is that the minimum price is 60 euros. It is speculated that the most expensive could be around 120 euros, double. Those members who wish to attend the final should make the request through the usual channels that the club offers. Anyway, until they know the exact number will not start the process. If applications exceed the availability of seats available, which in view of the above is likely to happen, it will hold a lottery. Anyway, the first step is to wait until March 3, the day that Barcelona and Real Madrid will know exactly which locations may account for the end of Mestalla.

What we also know as the two finalists will be located is where their respective interests. Barca will repeat the same area where he lived and the 4-1 against Athletic in the final two years ago. Blaugrana supporters occupy the towns of Valencia stadium north goal. In the event that marked the first title of the triplet, the Catalans were greatly outnumbered by supporters of Athletic, who used other means to achieve more flow. On this occasion, the club has blaugrana trying by all means that the distribution is equitable and that the entries that are not directly aimed at the clubs do not fall back into the hands of rival fans.

Another thing that has been achieved is to advance the final schedule. The intention was that Barcelona and Madrid to be played from 21 am, an hour before the originally envisaged by the Spanish Federation. But both clubs must comply with the time half an hour ahead of kick-off, so the final knockout tournament will start from 21.30. Most importantly, beyond the distribution of tickets and schedule, is to ensure that safety devices are a success before, during and after the game to be regretted that no incidents between the two hobbies. In that sense, all means will be so and the police will be higher than for the final held in 2009. (via SPORT)

Barcelona faces four visits complicated in their next six games

Mallorca, Valencia, Sevilla and Villarreal await Barca in their next four OUTPUTS · In between, the second leg against Arsenal · Calendar theoretically more favorable for Madrid in that stretch · The targets will face those stages, plus the San Calderon Mames, in the final of the League.

The League has reached its turning point. Barcelona faces the formidable stretch of schedule and, in theory, the next six days are more favorable for Madrid to Barca. If white people think that the club can be left points on the road, will be in these games or probably ever. In the next six league games for Guardiola, four are at home and complicated stage (Mallorca, Valencia, Sevilla and Villarreal). In this section, while the Madrid have three games out of the Bernabéu (Sports, Racing and Athletic) and three in Chamartin (Málaga, Hercules and Sporting).

Does not seem the best time for Barcelona's response to the 'Everest' calendar, with fatigue beginning to take its toll in the form of injury. In four days, Barcelona will face two consecutive starts, the Iberostar and Mestalla Stadium. In the first of them is missing Valdés, Alves, Puyol and Xavi, four starters, to measure a team that has taken 23 of the 31 points he has in his stadium. Mallorca and draw against Barca in the Nou Camp and took a point at home to Madrid. After the Barcelona travel to Valencia to face, perhaps without Valdes, Xavi and Puyol, the picture of Emery, who has not lost in league since he visited the Santiago Bernabeu ten days ago. Since then has seven wins and three draws.

Zaragoza after receiving the following output will be the Sánchez Pizjuán Barcelona, where he expects a Sevilla irregular but somewhat improved following the arrivals of Rakitic and Medel. Sevilla-Barcelona has the added ingredient that will play right after receiving Barca Arsenal in the Champions League, a circumstance that also need to know how to manage the team Guardiola. Two weeks later, the Barcelona visit the Madrigal stadium, where only the Levant has so far managed to win in this league.
Complicated four visits over the next six games will have to face Barcelona. The next departure after Madrigal, is already at Santiago Bernabeu in a game that probably will mark the future of the championship final. The stretch drive of the calendar, yes, so AFONT Madrid. It will do when I finish the club. Whites visit the Vicente Calderon, San Mames, Mestalla, Pizjuán and Madrigal in the last stretch of the season, where some say they actually decide the title. Stadiums really hard to have to visit them. Barca is just around the corner. As for no league. (via Marca)

Premier called Bojan


English football continues to look to the club. This week's Arsenal Wenger has made news for 'fish' again in the quarry Barcelona, specifically the cadet Jon Toral, which will packed up for London next summer at age 16. Bojan Krkic is 20 and, although not share that spirit of adventure, if it would would take the same fate. Tottenham, Arsenal rival city, Linyola intended that part of your draft next season.

Spokesmen for the Spurs have turned their environment to learn first hand what the player's willingness to move out, knowing that the striker has only minutes, even more since the arrival of Ibrahim Afellay. The response has been negative. Bojan still believes she can succeed at Barca's Guardiola and also open that door now would be detrimental to the team at a defining moment of the season like this.

Tottenham has not been the only team in the Premier Bojan interest (Chelsea and Arsenal will continue for some time). In Italy also is speculation the Juventus, although in his case has not yet been any contact with the environment Krkic. Juve have in mind to try to reinforce his signing ahead of next season. Napoli also followed closely. Anyway, if Bojan decided to take the step to leave the club, is likely to choose England ahead of Italy. "The Premier I like a lot," the squad recently acknowledged in an interview with Barça TV.

Following in the realm of hypothesis, another issue to be resolved upon a change of scenery would be the formula chosen to shape the signing. Do not forget that Bojan is only 20 years and also renewed its contract with the club two months ago to 2015, ie a transfer to hair would be very unlikely and even illogical. Seríaoptar more feasible for the transfer or a transfer option because in both cases the Catalan club never quite lost a very dear and valued player, although his participation in the first team not being expected.

The curriculum is Linyola spectacular third player in the history of Barça youngest and most precocious debut to score in the league, has already passed the 100 official matches in the first team despite his youth. In his hand is to keep trying as Barca despite the lack of opportunity or packing for an adventure in the Premier that, yes, you should have a return ticket upon proof of his talent. (via MD)

"

In addition to these facts, the judge recommended the amendment of Article 26 of the Regulations of the Club under which the Due Diligence "shall have the reserved character, can not be disclosed and will remain in the offices of the club" to "give more transparent information to financial management of the institution.
