Barcelona candidate Font: The president cannot act like an owner

Barcelona presidential candidate Victor Font says it's time to restructure the board.

Font insists there's too much emphasis on the role of the president and the influence one man has on the institution.

He told El Larguero: "I am convinced that I can be president. But obviously it depends on the members.

"It reinforces the idea of the club model that we want for the members. The president's chair looks like an electric chair because the president acts as if he were an owner.

"The control mechanisms do not work. The assembly of delegates works the same as in the 80. We either solve this or it may continue to happen."
