Toni Freixa, FC Barcelona spokesman and secretary, has become the newest member of the Real Federación Española de Fútbol (RFEF), the Spanish Football association. This is seen as as a bit of a triumph at the club, with President Sandro Rosell going as far as saying it was one of his presedential objectives that FC Barcelona “work within [RFEF] committees so that there are changes”.
On the appointment, Freixa has said: “We can directly express our beliefs on the purpose and function of committees and on the entire disciplinary system of the Federation. Barça must be part of all the federations in which the club participates”.
