Jordi Cruyff distances himself from ticket of Barcelona candidate Font

Jordi Cruyff has distanced himself from the ticket of Barcelona presidential candidate Victor Font.

Font has declared the former Barca striker will join the club as sporting director should he win next month's election.

But Jordi has taken to social media to insist his focus for now is on his position with Shenzhen FC in China.

He said, "I want to clarify that I am focused on my commitment to Shenzhen FC and am not involved in the electoral process for the Barça presidency."

It's been suggested things could quickly change should Font win the January vote.
