So, it’s now time to analyse what Joan Laporta has done over his first 100 days since he returned as president of Barcelona. The conclusion is that he needs more time to execute many of the plans he has in his mind. Laporta is having to deal with the financial problems left behind by Josep Maria Bartomeu’s administration and he still doesn’t have the definitive results of an audit he ordered as soon as he arrived. When a new leader reaches 100 days in the job, it’s time to analyse their first weeks in charge. There is a usually an unwritten pact not to judge the new arrival much until that date arrives. Laporta wants to have a concrete picture of the club’s financial situation. He knows it’s dramatic, but doesn’t know the magnitude.
