Tension remains between Barcelona president Laporta and Rijkaard
AS says the two still haven't settled their differences after Laporta overruled Rijkaard regarding the sale of one their 'Fantastic Four'.
Rijkaard wanted either Samuel Eto'o or Ronaldinho sold during the summer to offset the arrival of Thierry Henry. But Laporta refused and instead tried to find a buyer for Deco, but without success.
Rijkaard played the Portugal international from the start in last week's victory over Athletic Bilbao.
