Joan Laporta, Barcelona’s presidential candidate, who held the post from 2003 to 2010, spoke about the reconstruction of Camp Nou.
“I want us to be able to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the club at the new Camp Nou with Leo Messi. The problem with the stadium is not easy, because it will take two years to develop,” Laporta told Goal.
“The case is better with Leo than it is with a stadium. It would be fun to celebrate this anniversary with Messi. It would be a nice final show of fireworks.”
In November 2024, Barcelona will mark the club’s 125th anniversary.
