FC Barcelona bids farewell to ex-president Agusti Montal

IANS logoIANS 24-03-2017

The funeral, held at the Sant Vicen de Sarria Church, was attended by former Barcelona presidents Raimon Carrasco, Josep Lluis Nuez, Joan Gaspart, Enric Reyna, Joan Laporta and Sandro Rosell, as well as current President Josep Maria Bartomeu, along with other Barcelona executives, reports Efe.

RCD Espanyol was represented at the ceremony by its CEO, Ramon Robert.

During his presidency, Montal worked to regain the Catalan identity of Bara in the last years of the Franco dictatorship (1939-1975).

He was also responsible for the signing of Johan Cruyff, one of the greatest soccer legends of all time and whose death occurred almost one year ago.
