Final goodbye to Basora

This Wednesday the Funeral Chapel of Les Corts was packed by Club representatives to bid farewell to the legendary winger of Barça’s Five Cups team for the last time. President Sandro Rosell, accompanied by many Club officials, represented the FC Barcelona.

This afternoon, FC Barcelona’s directors, players, members and supporters said their final goodbye to the FC Barcelona legend, Estanislau Basora. The 85-year-old passed away last Friday.

President Sandro Rosell represented the Club during the ceremony held at Funeral Chapel of Les Corts, which is very close to the Camp Nou. Rosell was accompanied by FC Barcelona’s Social Area vice-president Jordi Cardoner and director Silvio Elías. Josep Guardiola, first-team captain Carles Puyol, and external affairs chairman Manel Estiarte were also present. Ex-FC Barcelona Presidents Agustí Montal, Josep Lluís Nuñez and Joan Laporta also gave their goodbyes to the legendary winger of Barça’s Five Cups team.

The Barça Players Association, which was chaired by Basora himself in the 70s, was also well represented. President Ramon Alfonseda was accompanied by Josep Seguer, teammate of Basora, Carles Rexach and Josep Maria Fusté, amongst others. This Tuesday, coinciding with the match against Granada, the Camp Nou paid tribute to one of the brightest stars in the Club’s long history. (via FCBarcelona.com)
