    President Sandro Rosell, with Ferran Adrià and Carles Rexach / PHOTO: GERMAN PARGA - FCB
    The FC Barcelona president explained that "the Camp Nou passes judgement and it gives its opinion, and the Camp Nou wants Valdés"

    President Sandro Rosell talked about the current events surrounding the Club during the presentation of the book ‘Being a Barça fan is ... The long history of great success.’ During the event Rosell talked about Víctor Valdés’ decision to not renew his contract - which expires next season - with the Club. “The doors are open to him. We’re here to talk if he reconsiders. We would like it if he stayed at Barça.” The president also talked about the way the fans treated Valdés on Sunday: “the Camp Nou passes judgment and gives its opinion and that’s exactly what happened. The Camp Nou wants Valdés.”

    A home-grown model

    These statements were made during a roundtable discussion at the presentation ceremony for the book ‘Being a Barça fan is ... The long history of great success.’ The event was attended by Carles Rexach and Ferran Adrià. The moderator of the discussion was Pilar Calvo. During the debate the president praised the Club’s current operations model, which was started 33 years ago with La Masia. “They believed in this model - a home grown model - could work.” He then said that when he and his Board of Directors came into power, that they held true to the philosophy of “if it works don’t touch it. If it doesn’t work, fix it." He added: "but we wanted to follow the model that started 33 years ago.” Carles Rexach noted: “the team’s most recent managers are people that were taught this philosophy.” Ferran Adrià admitted that what he likes the most about Barça are “the consequences. Barça’s power is incredible. It’s the best outward facing image of the country and that’s thanks to talent.”

    “Tito has talent”

    On the decision to name Tito Vilanova as Pep Guardiola’s successor, Rosell said, “we had an inkling [that he would do well] because we knew he played a big part in the decisions made when Guardiola was manager. He’s talented, he understands Barça, La Masia, what it means to be a Catalan ... those are difficult things to understand if you aren’t from here.” In addition, the president highlighted the values that the first team players represent and how it impacts children. “The team speaks Catalan in the dressing room and that says a lot. They are all friends. You see that in the dressing room and on the pitch.”

    Rosell went on to explain that “the Club never received and offer for Messi and if one were to ever come, the player wouldn’t pay attention to it.” He added jokingly, “if the Club ever received an offer for Messi, I’m sure it wouldn’t even get past our mail filter.”

    ‘Being a Barça fan is ...’

    ‘Being a Barça fan is ... The long history of great success’  is a book written by Juanjo González and Eduard Gonzalo and it highlights the testimonies of public and Club figures like Tito Vilanova, Leo Messi, Sandro Rosell, Pep Guardiola and Josep Carreras, among others.

    Blaugrana gathering

    The directors Jordi Mestre, Pilar Guinovart, Jordi Moix, Ramon Pont, Joan Bladé and Javier Bordas attended the ceremony, as did Antoni Rossich, Pau Vilanova, Josep Maria Fusté, Guillermo Amor, Eusebio Sacristán, Julio Alberto, the Barça presidents Josep Lluís Núñez and Enric Reyna.

    Messi and the four Ballon d'Or in BARÇA MAGAZINE
    Exclusive photo shoot with the FCB striker outside La Masia Messi and Iniesta discuss the Barça style and coaching methods Busquets, Pedro, Thiago and Bartra model the new range of Nike casual gear

    February’s BARÇA MAGAZINE includes a special celebration of the fourth Ballon d’Or won by the great Leo Messi, with the player appearing outside the new Masia, close to the training fields at the Ciutat Esportiva. A terrific combination of the best player in the world and one of the most iconic places of modern FC Barcelona.

    This month’s issue takes a look back at the Argentinian’s glittering career and all that he has done to deserve the honour of being the only man ever to win the Ballon d’Or four times. Vincent Machenaud of ‘France Football’, who has interviewed the player several times in recent years, examines the life of the Barça star from the first time he was nominated for the award through to his astonishing fourth consecutive win.

    Head to head between Messi and Iniesta

    Never before has the same club produced different winners of the awards for best player in the world and Europe in the same year, even less so two players that were brought up in the same system. BARÇA MAGAZINE brings together Leo Messi and Andrés Iniesta for an unprecedented meeting. The interview shows elements of the personal sides of these two men who have captivated the world not only with their football, but also with their humility. Chatting casually, the players talk about the Barça style and the pride they share for having enjoyed such a marvellous education. They both agree that the Barça philosophy will endure much longer than any individual player.

    But they are not the only Barça players to feature in this issue. Busquets, Pedro, Thiago and Bartra all became models for a day to present the new Nike range of casual clothing. It’s a vintage collection involving four players that represent the present and future of the club.

    There are also two articles celebrating a couple of centenaries associated to our club. The first is a testimonial to Edelmira Calvetó, the first ever female member of the club, who was enrolled a hundred years ago. And the other is to Nicolau Casaus, a man who dedicated his life to FC Barcelona, and who was born a century ago.
