Barcelona presidential candidate Font eager for legends to return

Barcelona presidential candidate Victor Font is eager for more the club's icons to be involved in his project.

Font explained that he wants to embrace the legends of the club and to involve them in the new project.

"It is our intention to build a very strong and competitive project and we are very lucky at Barcelona that we inherited a style of play that Johan Cruyff instilled throughout the organisation," Font told Sky Sports.

"Most of the best professionals who know about this style are also fans and love the club, like Pep Guardiola, Xavi, Andres Iniesta and Carles Puyol. They are all legends that love Barcelona but do not work for Barcelona today. We need to bring them back to ensure we will have a very competitive project."
