The new president travelled with the squad for the trip to the French capital and will likely accompany them for all future matches under his presidency.
Laporta – who was formerly the club’s president between 2003 and 2010, when they won two Champions League trophies – secured the presidency with 30,184 votes (54.28 percent of the votes) and is now tasked with steering the club through a turbulent financial period and providing stability.
