Laporta: Mourinho wanted to come to Barcelona

Joan Laporta has again criticized the leadership of the man who replaced him as Barcelona President, following on from his allegations earlier this month that Sandro Rosell had links to hooliganism.

Laporta, who presided over the Catalan club from 2003-2010, has never hidden his contempt for his successor.

In the latest attack on Rosell's character, Laporta has criticized the leaders of the Blaugrana for what he considers to be a lack of direction at Camp Nou.

"The path they have chosen is mistaken... I do not even know which path they have chosen, " Laporta told Il Catenaccio. "When I was President, I had no problem explaining to the world the Catalan cause."

"They are living in our heritage," added Laporta, who was in charge when Barcelona won its second Champions League crown in 2006.

Barcelona has won two further Champions League titles under Rosell, in 2009 and 2011.
