Laporta has no plans to quit

09 Jul 2008 - 07:52:19

Barcelona president Joan Laporta has refuted reports suggesting he is set to resign.

Laporta lost a vote of confidence on Sunday but was not forced from office as less than 61 per cent of fans - short of the required two-thirds - voted against him.

Reports in the Spanish media suggested he would hand in his notice at a board meeting on Thursday, but Laporta responded by saying: "I do not intend to resign. It is legitimate to continue."

Laporta has come under fire after a couple of trophy-less seasons at the Camp Nou.
