Joan Laporta has been elected as the new president of the football club Barcelona.

Laporta beat his opponents Victor Font and Tony Freixa with a fine margin to become the president for the second time.

Earlier, Laporta headed the Blaugranas from 2003-2010.

The Barcelona Presidential elections held on Sunday where 50.48 per cent of members cast their vote (55,676 votes).

Laporta got 54.28 per cent votes (30,184), while his opponents’ Font received 29.99 per cent (16,679) and Freixa was third with just 8.58 per cent (4769).

The 351 votes were cast blank and 3628 were spoilt.

During his first reign as president of Barcelona in 2003, Laporta made some serious business in terms of attracting some of the biggest players in world football at that time including Ronaldinho, Thierry Henry, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Deco.

He also appointed Pep Guardiola the manager who won the sextuple in the 2009-10 season.

After getting elected, Laporta talked about the club’s legend and current captain Lionel Messi and said he surely wants the Argentine to stay at the club.
