Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu intends to stand for re-election.

Bartomeu has announced that he plans to see out his current term in June 2016 and then stand for re-election, meaning he could keep the job until 2022.

Speaking during Barça's Ordinary General Assembly at the Palau de Congressos conference centre, the 'Azulgranas' supremo - who inherited the post after Sandro Rosell resigned - told club representatives that he wants to finish what he has started.
