President Laporta is ready to serve for second term, having left the Camp Nou side in 2010.
He gained Triumph in Sunday’s election as he was voted as Barca’s President.
A total of 55,611 members voted, with Laporta securing 54.3 per cent of the vote, expressly beating rivals Victor Font (30 per cent) and Toni Freixa (9 per cent).
Laporta’s first reign at Barcelona was outstanding and successful, he took charge of the club in 2003 and left it seven years later indisputably the best team in the world.
Although his return reign won’t be as easy as the first because his challenge will be even greater. Barcelona are mired in debt and will be forced to spend wisely.
However, the contract of Messi expires in the summer. Laporta had promised those who voted for him before the election that their best chance of retaining the Argentine was to vote for him. It would, therefore, be an early blow to his credibility if Messi were to leave the club.
