For the past few years, Barcelona have been struggling with financial problems. Their difficulties even forced the club to go to extreme measures and activate their economic levers.
However, according to the club president, Joan Laporta, the situation is slowly returning to normal.
“In 2003 we were in a moment of maximum difficulty, we had a deficit and a significant debt, now we have also had it, and perhaps, with the passage of time, 20 years, the magnitudes are much greater although conceptually it is the same.
“But to the difficulties we have to add the financial ‘fair play’, as they are rules interpreted and dictated by LaLiga, it generates a certain complexity when managing the club but we have to adapt and we are doing so.”
Talking about the club’s sporting situation, Laporta added: “We are at a key moment, which is the turning point. Because once the club has been saved, we have a team that is competing again, we have set ourselves the priority objective of La Liga, of maximum consistency.
“We continue to compete, we have won the league, we want to continue to be dominant in Spain and take another step towards being more competitive in competitions such as the Champions League, which is always important.”
