Joan Laporta wins Barcelona presidential election rasing hopes Lionel Messi could remain at the club

Laporta, whose first spell ended in 2010 when Barcelona was the best team on the planet with a squad boasting Iniesta, Xavi, Messi and coached by Pep Guardiola, will now resume for the second term at the helm of the club.

That Barcelona squad is still regarded as one of the greatest sides of all time.

Before the election, Laporta had promised those who voted for him that their best chance of retaining Lionel Messi was to vote for him

As Messi’s deal expires in the summer, Laporta has promised to start negotiations with the star player.

When he was asked after the electoral results were announced if he would be in touch with Messi’s entourage tomorrow, he said: “Why tomorrow? I can speak tonight, the night is long.”

“These are the most important elections in the history of FC Barcelona,” Laporta declared. “They have been organized in a model fashion.”

Font, Laporta’s opponent in the election told TV3: “I think it has been a constructive campaign. It is good for the institution that we celebrate a democratic day like today and that we congratulate the winner.

“Obviously, the results are not what we wanted, but I want to thank thousands of Catalans who have supported us and given us their trust.

“I believe that the context in which the club finds itself has led to a rebound effect. We were fighting against a well-known former president. Against that, it has been very complicated

“I will continue working to ensure that the Barca of the future is as we believe it should be. We have to reflect and digest the result, but the aims of helping to transform the club continue.”

Mourinho, upon hearing of Solksjaer’s comments then offered a withering rebuke at Solksjaer, questioning his fatherhood.

“I just want to say Son is very lucky that his father is a better person than Ole because I think a father – and I am a father – you have always to feed your kids. It does not matter what they do. If you have to steal to feed your kids, you steal.” An angry Mourinho said.

“I am very, very disappointed. With me, like we say in Portugal, bread is bread and cheese is cheese, have told Ole already what I think of his comments.

“I told Ole already this because I met him a few minutes ago. If it was me saying that player A, B or C from another club – if, as he says that if it was my son that I won’t give him dinner tonight or something like that – what would be the level of the reaction.

“First of all let me tell you something. I am very, very surprised that after the comments Ole made on Sonny, you don’t ask me about it.

“It is very, very sad and I think it is really sad that you don’t ask me about it. It is really sad that you don’t have the moral honesty the same way as you treat others.”

No Pastor In Ghana Can Face Me : Avraham Moshe Tells Maame Grace

Published

on

Religious nonconformer and leader of Common Sense Family, Avraham Ben Moshe has openly challenged Ghanaian pastors to dare attempt to deliver him if they believe God called them.

He further stated that Avraham Moshe will rather deliver any Christian pastor who tries to convert him.

Avraham Moshe spoke exclusively on GHOne TV’s Revelation with host Apostle Maame Grace.

On the same show which was in two episodes that aired on Sunday, April 2020, Avraham opened up for the first time about his beginnings and his family history on Revelations with Maame Grace.

Described as a counterculturist of all religions, Avraham Ben Moshe gave details about his Muslim parents and how he started as a young Christian preacher.

During the explosive interview, Avraham Moshe proclaimed that God has not spoken to any man on earth before. ” With the over 7 billion humans on earth, God has never spoken to anyone before since the beginning of time. He has not spoken to any pastor before. ” – Avraham Moshe told Apostle Maame Grace on Revelations.

He said that humans have been given different forms of senses, therefore, it is only the sense of a person that speaks to him or her, not God or any divine entity.

Avraham Moshe exploded further to say that, African gods are supposed to worship humans not the other way round.

We cannot speak for the many shocking things Avraham Moshe said in Revelations, but we can only caution that you listen when making your conclusion.

Revelations on GHOne TV is a private television show owned by Global Eagle Revival Outreach Ministry in Ghana, headed by Apostle Maame Grace who is the host of the show.

Revelations seek to deliver God by unearthing dark secrets of the spiritual world that usually takes us away from the lord of God through his son Jesus Christ.

The show has seen its third season for over 3 years on television and it has grown a very massive following especially on social media.
